An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures

Justice for Lives Lost

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I am writing to request that you support legislation that would bring officers who break the law to justice. Unarmed civilians deserve justice after being murdered by police officers. Your support can help bring justice where it is due. The NAACP is demanding 1) a ban on the use of knee holds and choke holds as acceptable practice for police officers. 2) The Use of Force Continuum must ensure that there are at least six levels of steps, with clear rules on escalation. 3) Each state's Open Records Act must ensure officer misconduct information and disciplinary histories are not shielded from the public. Recertification credentials may be denied for police officers if determined that their use of deadly force was unwarranted by federal guidelines. 4) Implementation of Citizen's Review Boards in municipalities to hold police departments accountable and build public confidence. Please support these demands and help bring justice for all people lost to police brutality.
