Massachusetts is not immune to police violence and misconduct—and we must demand change. Right now, legislators in Massachusetts have the unprecedented opportunity to end qualified immunity, impose real restrictions on use of force, and ban police use of face surveillance technology. During the week of September 21, we will use a range of activism tools to bring attention to incidents of police violence across our state.
Police violence happens here: help us demand an end to it in Massachusetts.
