Police Reform 

At the Federal level, the NAACP is in strong support of the provisions in H.R. 7120, the “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act."  Among other things, the legislation holds all law enforcement officials accountable for their actions, ends "qualified immunity" for police officers, ends racial and religious profiling, empowers our communities, establishes uniform policies for the use of force, mandates data collection on police encounters, bans chokeholds and "no knock" warrants, limits military equipment on American streets, requires body-worn cameras and classifies lynching as a hate crime, therefore making it open to Federal resources for investigations and prosecutions. 

Police reform legislation is scheduled to be considered in both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate next week.

 Action is needed-contact our U. S. Senators, Lindsay Graham & Tim Scott and U. S. Congressman, William Timmons. TAKE ACTION. FOLLOW THIS LINK-
