An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures

Call a special legislative session NOW: Defund police.

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Oregon needs your action now. Convene a special legislative session immediately to DEFUND the police and REINVEST in social policies and solutions that will house, feed, employ, and genuinely protect our citizens—which is more important than ever as we face a global pandemic. This change should not be left up to each city or county to decide what is fair (particularly in areas where minorities are especially unsafe and underrepresented)—we need leadership at a state and federal level. You owe it to the Black communities of our state—and every person who elected you—to make these changes now. Defund police and reinvest in long-term, peaceful solutions.
