Police Accountability
Demand it. Maintain it. Expect it.

In the past year, incidents from New York City to Ferguson to Salt Lake City and Saratoga Springs highlight the growing perception that something is dreadfully wrong with our policing systems. The Salt Lake Tribune recently published an article concluding that officer involved shootings were the second most common type of homicide in Utah, second only to intimate partner violence.

The present culture has often led to mistrust between law enforcement and communities, particularly among people of color and low-income communities. Frequently the courts and internal systems of discipline have provided little or no public accountability for misbehavior or bad policy.

If this issue is important to you, then come to the meeting on June 13th and let's start working towards better citizen review boards or start citizen review boards in cities without them.

Do you want to work to end police brutality in Utah? Do you want an empowered citizen review board? Then come to this free event by Racially Just Utah!

Saturday, June 13. 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.,

All community members are welcome.

We will be having action-oriented dialogues on what needs to be done in different cities in order to reform or create empowered civilian review boards. We will have people available with information on what an empowered civilian review board looks like and how we can create them. It takes OUR leadership to make it happen. Let’s get to work!
