Where We Are – An Update

We still here! We’re still working on this ordinance!

It’s a long process to pass an ordinance is what we’re learning. There are so many meetings, so many emails, and so many conversations about how do we powerfully create police accountability.

Where we are now is that we have a newer version of the CSA that has a few changes to it. These changes are based on feedback from City Council’s office, folks who are working hard with us to make sure that we get this ordinance passed immediately.

On Tuesday February 7th at 530pm, the CSA will be a part of the Ordinance Committee agenda. This is not a vote on the CSA but rather re-introducing the CSA with all of the latest changes. Afterwards, we will be holding another public hearing for the CSA on February 21st (time to be determined) to testify once again on the importance of this ordinance.

We will need you on the 21st to pack City Hall and to say that we have waited long enough. We have compromised long enough. We need safety now.

Invite all of your friends, community members, and family to the CSA Public Hearing on Feb. 21st (time to be determined). And please check our Facebook (/Community Safety Act) for more instant updates.

in solidarity,
