#159CalltoAction: Police Monitoring

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing all consent agreements with police forces in the wake of recent high profile shootings of civilians, including Baltimore, Chicago and Ferguson, Missouri. Sessions also has ended a Justice Department partnership independent scientists to raise forensic science standards as well as an expanded review of FBI testimony. While the outrage is acceptable, let's remember we have a say in this.

We can't change with Sessions is doing in Washington, D.C., but we can call our local police chiefs and officials and remind them we are watching and will hold them accountable when unarmed civilians are shot by police. We will demand justice. #159CalltoAction #159BeVigilant #159GoLocal
