Any day now the Senate is expected to release a bipartisan package of public safety reforms that will set the stage for a showdown in Congress over an initial step in transforming public safety across the country. But unless your senators hear from you about the types of reforms that are needed, it may not be as robust as it should.
While state and local officials have begun to evaluate changes to policing that will work best in their communities, it is the responsibility of our federal government to set a standard for justice, anti-racist policing, and safety in America. It is long past time for legislation to be passed that would address these problems at the federal level, and it’s imperative that the Senate act immediately in a meaningful way.
Urge your senators to support a robust public safety reform package – one that includes the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act!
