We have a great opportunity now to hold police officers acountable for planting evidence, sexually assaulting, or killing members of the public. We are closer than ever to lifting the veil of police secrecy with Senate Bill 1421. This bill would give the public access to records of police misconduct, including use of deadly force, and it’s up for a vote in the California Assembly this week.
In addition, the Assembly will vote on AB 931, which updates California police’s deadly use of force standard. Under AB 931, police would only be allowed to use deadly force if there were no reasonable alternatives available and if there was an imminent threat to the officer or another person’s safety.
For decades, our communities, especially communities of color, have demanded accountability for police violence. We have the chance to make a real difference by acting now.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
Call Assemblymembers David Chiu and Phil Ting and tell them to support AB 1421 and AB 931 (call scripts).
