ACTION ALERT: Call Congress to Condemn Police Brutality and End These Injustices

Picture

With recent incidents of police brutality against George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbury, we call on Congress to take action. These acts of violence by law enforcement officials are inexcusable as are the discrimination, institutional racism, and abuses of power that have targeted Black people across the nation for far too long. 

We urge Congress to act now and pass H.R. 4408, the Eric Garner Excessive Use of Force Prevention Act, to prohibit police chokeholds and other harmful tactics that result in asphyxiation. Additionally, we urge Congress to pass and support the House Resolution introduced by Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA-7), which condemns police brutality, racial profiling, and the excessive use of force.

We need your voice: Tell Congress to condemn all acts of police brutality and implement policies to end these injustices.
