Be Heard- Use Your Voice
Urge Your Elected Officials for Reforming in Police Policies
In order for reform on police policies, active measures to demand policymakers ensure the end to police brutality need to occur. Elected officials in local, state, and federal level need to embrace solutions for police accountability as well as correcting systems in place that allow tactics for police brutality.
Have your voice heard. Urge your elected officials that change needs to happen to stop police brutality. All levels of government have their part towards police reform. Get in contact with your elected officials and demand for action to end police brutality. It can be as simple as stating your time and how you are against police brutality, or you can express your concerns and thoughts- but as long as you are actively contacting your officials, your voice is being heard.
