Recently, the group responded in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. The group has sent letters to local and state officials calling for state and local officials to:

  • Invest in and transfer non-patrol police duties to appropriate professionals and agencies, such as those who are qualified to work with people with mental health issues, people who are unsheltered, and others.
  • Work with the Black community leaders to identify and change racist policies, procedures, and programs into effective community-focused actions.
  • Prioritize investment of resources for Black communities, Native American and people of color communities that are hardest hit and further exacerbated by COVID-19.
  • Have Black and community oversight boards for transparency and accountability purposes.
