'Building Momentum From the Ground Up: A Toolkit for Promoting Justice in Policing'

To help address and mitigate the consequences of discriminatory policing and mass incarceration, the has published a toolkit for organizers, elected officials, and community members seeking to enact local law enforcement policy reforms. The report, (58 pages, PDF), outlines fifteen reforms in five areas — ending mass criminalization, safe and just police interactions, community control, independent oversight, and improving police practices — ranging from the application of a racial impact tool for all criminal justice legislation and bans on bias-based policing, to the use of body cameras and special or independent prosecutors, to improved training for police officers. The report also provides resources and questions for those working to develop campaigns around specific policy reforms as well as community-based alternatives to policing.
