End Police Brutality.
We've waited for far too long for meaningful federal legislation from Congress. In the meantime, many more Black lives have been lost at the hands of police officers. On Jan. 26, 2023, multiple former Memphis police officers have been charged with the murder of 29-year-old Tyre Nichols – but true justice requires more accountability.
We demand Congress take swift action by passing legislation on police reform to end the horrors of police brutality and reform a criminal justice system that fails to properly hold law enforcement officials accountable.
Failure to pass legislation is a failure to protect the people who elected you.
Join us in a call to:
- End qualified immunity, which protects government officials from lawsuits seeking monetary damages, and
- Collect data on police encounters that will provide transparency and safety for our communities

By failing to pass the legislation, you're passing on your sworn duty to protect the people. We can name all the victims of police violence, but we can't name a single law you have passed to address it. Tell us what you're going to do to honor Tyre Nichols.- Derrick Johnson, President and CEO
