Support Campaign Zero (or #8toAbolish)
XRPDX stands with the Black Lives Matter movement, as part of our commitment to the 4th Demand.
We have recently learned about Campaign Zero, a project of the non-profit organization, We The Protesters. Campaign Zero works to identify effective solutions to end police violence, specifically the development of model legislation and advocacy to end police violence nationwide.
Please check out their website, then contact your state and federal representatives and tell them to pass the legislation immediately to end police violence. There’s a handy tracker of relevant legislation now under consideration in Salem, along with a form to fill out to contact your reps.
[Alternatively, if you don't think police can be reformed or that society doesn't need them at all, check out #8toAbolish, which envisions a world beyond policing. — Your Faithful Editor]
