The election of a racist, sexist, xenophobic fascist man was a slap in the face to all people of color.
...the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed and campaigned for this racist, sexist, xenophobic fascist man.
Such an alliance with a hate monger is in direct opposition with their mission to “protect and serve.”
We are declaring that the FOP is ethically UNFIT to serve our communities.
The police have chosen their side - a president who is anti-black, anti-immigrant, anti-Lantinx, anti-women, anti-LGBTQ, anti-US...so we are anti-POLICE.
We demand police and criminal justice reform:
-End to Stop & Frisk
-Reject Martina White’s HB1538 for decreased police accountability
-End racial profiling
-Increased use of body cameras (no gap time)
-End use of riot gear
-Independent, elected community advisory board
-Increased community policing, including increased sensitivity and de-escalation training
-End excessive bail
-Increased funding for public defenders
-End drug-testing for parolees
