Victims of police abuse, community leaders, and local organizations are demanding that Baltimore City stop its forced silence policy. Baltimore City is one of the few jurisdictions in the country that has the practice of requiring victims to agree to gag orders – in the form of non-disparagement agreements -- to settle police misconduct cases. This policy is a choice: Baltimore city does not have to silence police abuse victims.
Please take action now.
"If your voice held no power, they would not try to silence you. Use your power. Speak up!"
