TAKE ACTION AGAINST POLICE VIOLENCE

To All Participants in the Friends Committee on North Carolina Legislation:

FCNCL Policy Statement: We promote criminal justice reform, led by the Quaker testimonies of Peace and Equality and in support of our FCNCL Minute on Anti-racism. 

FCNCL is committed to Anti-Racism. We stand in solidarity with the North Carolina Council of Churches, the Poor People’s Campaign, and others committed to addressing systemic racism.

We ask you to contact your municipal and state officials to:

  1. Stop Militarization of Police. Redirect funding away from military equipment and military training for police and increase funding towards meeting community needs.
  2. Adopt 8CAN’TWAIT. Urge your municipality to enact the 8CAN’TWAIT guidelines for policing.
