WE STOPPED TEXAS FROM CRIMINALIZING CHARITABLE BAIL FUNDS
Cash bail is a predatory practice that preys on the poor and marginalized. It would have been disastrous if the state had criminalized efforts to help those people, many who shouldn’t even be in jail in the first place.
WE BANNED DEADLY POLICE TACTICS — FROM KILLEEN, TEXAS TO THE STATE OF COLORADO
It took months of organizing and collaborating with legislators and local leaders. In Killeen, we worked with Jumeka Reed to ban no-knock raids – the kind that killed Jumeka’s brother and Breonna Taylor. In Colorado, our legislation was signed into law, banning ketamine injections, a dangerous sedative that has killed people when used in large amounts.
WE HELPED CITIES ALLOCATE $250 MILLION INTO THE MOST EFFECTIVE VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Instead of police and more public safety solutions by writing policies and advocating in cities across the country, including Philadelphia, San Diego, and Houston.
IN CALIFORNIA, WE ADVOCATED FOR THE MOST PROGRESSIVE POLICE DECERTIFICATION BILL IN THE COUNTRY UNTIL GOV. GAVIN NEWSOM SIGNED IT INTO LAW
We made nearly 5,000 calls to support SB2, SB 299, and SB 710, and while we didn’t get two of them signed into law, we laid out strong markers for what real changes to our justice system should look like.
WE WON CRITICAL FIGHTS TO REPLACE POLICE WITH REAL PUBLIC SAFETY SOLUTIONS.
We helped Philadelphia, San Diego, Phoenix, Austin, and Houston establish alternative crisis response teams and community services – altogether we helped move over $235.5 million into real public safety solutions that can replace police.
