POLICE REFORM AND ACCOUNTABILITY
The time for social justice has come. At the very forefront of that reckoning is the need for police reform and accountability. While the majority of police officers are good public servants, there are repeated incidents of officer misconduct. For too long, people of color have disproportionately been the recipients of police misconduct, and have struggled to have their complaints heard or believed and for anyone to be held accountable.
The world witnessed such misconduct firsthand with the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, to name a few. Investigations of these incidents are done in secrecy and lack the transparency needed to foster public trust.
From laws on the books, to approved law enforcement policies and procedures, the institutional systems that allow these injustices to take place must change. Citizens must use their voices and votes, pens and paper to demand change on this issue. This page provides information for seeking that change.
