  • Action #1: Protest information/news you can use.
  • Action #2: The NAACP asks that you make that call on HR 6800 now!

  • Action #6: Join with the NAACP in calling for a law regulating police officer behavior.
  • Action #7: Ask your representative to co-sponsor the Omar-Pressley resolution AND HR 119 – National Statistics on Deadly Force Transparency Act of 2019.
  • Action #8: End “Qualified Immunity” for abusive police.
  • Action #9: Hello! Have we actually passed that antilynching bill?
  • Action #10: “Walk with us!” vs. “Light ’em up!”- Demilitarize our police.
