Black and Brown hands linking in solidarity

Bring Accountability Back to the Department of Justice

There is an epidemic of police killing and abusing Black and Brown people. And we have an Attorney General hell-bent on making sure these injustices continue for a very long time.

Communities and movements have been fighting for generations to achieve real accountability for prosecutors and police. Not only is Jeff Sessions working to dismantle that progress, he’s crafting initiatives and policies that will make these betrayals of justice even worse.

We live in a world today where we have no reliable data on how many people are shot by police officers each year. Where police can use the same weapons of war our military uses in Iraq and Afghanistan on our streets. Where prosecutors protect police departments, not the communities that elect them, and turn a blind eye to police misconduct.

Prosecutors and law enforcement should be accountable to the communities they serve, but Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department is widening the divide between police and communities and fueling mass incarceration.

We will not accept this. We must take action to ensure real accountability and community safety.

Join us in making five clear demands to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Justice Department must:

  • Develop guidelines for prosecutors to shrink racial disparities, bolster accountability, and reduce mass incarceration;
  • Enforce requirements for data collection and reporting on police-community encounters;
  • De-militarizing the police;
  • Stop allowing police departments to profit by seizing property; and
  • Restore community policing programs.
