An open letter to the U.S. Congress

End Police Violence

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I’m writing to ask that you immediately and forcefully support all reasonable efforts to reform the way we police in the United States, especially efforts to reduce police violence, racial-bias, and to increase police accountability for their actions. Please support modifying Qualified Immunity to end the shielding of police officers from repercussions for their violent, illegal actions; please support ending the 1033 program, which transfers military equipment to police departments across the country; please incentivize states to ban the use of chokeholds and strangleholds; and please support a system to track complaints and disciplinary measures against officers as well as efforts to make those records publicly accessible. This is not an exhaustive list. You have an obligation to act on behalf of the citizens that are your constituents. America is and can be better than this.
