  • special large meeting to launch a broad community campaign to get a charter amendment for a stronger police review commission in Berkeley on the 2020 ballot.

Phase 1 of our ongoing campaign:

-Recruit more people, from different sectors of the community, to get involved with this issue.

-Educate the public about the need for a stronger police review function in Berkeley, especially given the continuing racial disparities in policing.

-Build public pressure on the Mayor & City Council to put the charter amendment (Arreguin/Harrison version, which is currently under consideration) on the 2020 ballot. The vote to put it on the ballot could come as early as September.

Phase 2
-If the Council puts the charter amendment on the ballot, we will be working to ensure that it gets passed.
-If they do not put it on the ballot, we have the other option of pursuing a signature campaign to get it on the ballot.
