A sample letter to send off today
Police departments, sheriff’s offices, state troopers and highway patrol offices are administered at the municipal, county, or state level. Making detailed changes locally is often a swifter process than trying to change things at a national level. Goals like #prisonabolition and #policeabolition can’t be achieved overnight. If you want to work toward ending police violence, try starting locally.
To have an impact locally, let your elected officials know your thoughts. Click here for a draft email or letter to elected officials with a number of alternatives laid out.
