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!
