AB 392 simply mandates that law enforcement must exhaust every possible alternative before they use deadly force. This is common sense legislation that will save lives. Yet and still, some of our legislators at the State Capitol are hesitant – or flat out refusing – to vote for the bill. The Law Enforcement Lobby is strong. But nothing is stronger than the power of the people! On Monday, May 13th – we are heading up to Sacramento to spend the day lobbying legislators. Impacted families, advocates and organizers will gather at the capitol to demand that they #letuslive.
The California Act to Save Lives #AB392 will save lives and stop police from using deadly force when there are alternatives. So far, we have passed AB 392 out the first committee – now we must overcome the biggest hurdle yet, the Assembly Floor. Let’s keep up the momentum at Lobby Day. Join us to make your voice heard at the Capitol on May 13!
