The nationwide outcry for racial justice is heating up on Capitol Hill: With support across both aisles, the House of Representatives just passed the Justice in Policing Act, a bill that would help end racist policing and violence at the hands of law enforcement. Now, it’s up to the Senate -- including the two senators from your state.
We expect resistance in the Senate on this bill, and we MUST make enough noise right now in order to send a clear message that our lawmakers need to pass this meaningful legislation to help save lives.
Act now: Help mobilize massive public pressure on your senators to pass the Justice in Policing Act by calling their offices directly. It only takes a minute, and we’ve provided a script and a line directly to your senators below.
Hello, my name is [insert your name] , and I am your constituent from [insert city and state]. I am calling to urge [senator’s name] to improve and pass S. 3912, the Justice in Policing Act, which would be a major step in ending police violence and combating racism in our country.
Now is not the time for watered-down reforms. This is a critical moment in our history. Violent policing, particularly towards Black and brown communities, must end, and this legislation would move us in the right direction toward prioritizing a bold agenda that brings about meaningful accountability, reimagines public safety and provides justice for all people. I will be watching Senator [Last Name]’s action closely — I strongly encourage them to stand on the right side of history by improving and passing the Justice in Policing Act. Thank you for your time.
