The Justice in Policing Act of 2020 is an extensive federal poling reform bill that addresses many of the policies that give police outsized power — and inadequate accountability — in communities. Unfortunately, it’s just not sensible enough.

Act today to tell Congress: Our communities deserve better! Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, George Floyd, Tony McDade, Tamir Rice, and the countless others killed by police deserved better. We cannot wait. The Justice in Policing Act must be amended to create meaningful restraints on police violence and redirect funding to heal communities. Read our fact sheet below for our recommendations.
