Police Reform: Keep up the Pressure!
Last week, the Massachusetts State Senate passed a major racial justice and police accountability bill that would make it harder for cops to claim "qualified immunity" - despite intense pressure from police unions.
The House is set to vote on its version of this bill (H.4860) this week. It's time to tell our reps to pass the strongest bill possible. Reforms are meaningless if there are no consequences for abuse.
The ACLU of Massachusetts is supporting several key amendments and opposing others, such as to study - rather than end - qualified immunity and weaken regulation of facial recognition technology. They're also making it easy for you to contact your reps about this bill. Find out more and let your reps know you are watching!
