2023 Issue Areas

We’re looking for a statute that allows victims of government abuse to sue for violations of their state and federal constitutional rights, ends the defense of qualified immunity for all government officials, and provides for attorney’s fees. 

We are looking for an ordinance, mayoral order, or budget item that provides for creation of crisis response teams staffed by social workers and mental health professionals. The legislation would empower a municipal agency to hire and train civilian responders.

We are looking for departmental policies and municipal level legislation that removes officers with known hate group affiliations or a record of explicit bias from US police departments and precludes officers with these affiliations or histories from joining the force or being retained.

We're looking for federal, state, and municipal governments to end or decline to renew contracts with corporate actors that are responsible for training and operation of police departments and jails.
