An open letter to State Legislatures

Urgent Need for Police Reform

10 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

It is time for police reform. Recent events and the tragic history of policing in this country have brought to light a fundamental issue with how our police view citizens in an adversarial manner and with the uneven application of the law. And it is clearer still that those problems are thriving here in Alabama. It is time for our state to enact reforms to combat this problem. Campaign Zero is an organization working to eliminate unnecessary police violence. They have ten recommendations for effective reform, backed up by research. Please use their knowledge to craft effective legislation. The police can only be effective agents for peace when they are trusted by the communities they serve. Please help bring peace back to our communities and help our police become worthy of our trust again. I hope you use your position of power to put a check on others who are abusing theirs. The time to act is now before more lives are destroyed.
