Very happy and excited to announce that we DID IT AGAIN, and were able to get another DNC Resolution written by one of our Grassroots Coordinating Committee (GCC), National Messaging & Policy Task Force members, Audra, passed by the entire Democratic Party during the 2018 Summer Meeting of the DNC in Chicago.
Titled "Supporting Better Accountability and Transparency for Law Enforcement Officers" this critically important Resolution included the following:

  • Establish a National Database to collect information about officer-involved shootings.
  • This Database should be administered by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and all law enforcement agencies would be required to submit reports quarterly.
  • The DOJ should develop a national standard governing the use of force practices by, and de-escalation training for all U.S. law enforcement officers.
  • Calls for officers to be treated without favor and held to the same standards as everyone else.

The GCC also wanted to express our gratitude to our INCREDIBLE partner Ms. Yasmine Taeb, DNC Committeewoman from Virginia, for working so diligently get all our Resolutions passed by the DNC.

Below is a copy of Audra’s specific Resolution and below is a link to all of the Resolutions Passed during the DNC Summer Meeting which can be viewed (HERE).
