Freinds Committee on North Carolina Legislation is committed to Anti-Racism and has issued a new Action Alert to address police violence. We stand in solidarity with the North Carolina Council of Churches, the Poor People’s Campaign, and others committed to addressing systemic racism. We ask you to contact your municipal and state officials to:
1. Stop Militarization of Police. Redirect funding away from military equipment and military training for police and increase funding towards meeting community needs.
2. Adopt 8CAN’TWAIT. Urge your municipality to enact the 8CAN’TWAIT guidelines for policing.
