Declare Racism and Police Violence a Public Health Emergency!
end policing that is violent against Marginalized populations, Particularly our black communities (e.g., racial profiling, stop and frisk, gang injunctions, criminalization of houselessness)
Redirect funds from law enforcement agencies to community-based programs for harm prevention, intervention, and transformative justice
Stop and reverse militarization of law enforcement
Eliminate legislative and union contract provisions that shield the police from accountability
Declare records of all investigations of law enforcement brutality with associated materials as public property and ensure public accessibility
Immediately end the violence against protestors. We stand in solidarity with them!
