WHEREAS, bringing hope and reassurance to communities across the nation, its members work to resolve and eliminate harassment, racial profiling, and favoritism in the work environment and the school and justice systems; and
WHEREAS, this outstanding advocacy group established its movement in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 24, 2000, and, since that time, has been working diligently to guide young people towards a more successful and constructive future; and

Law Enforcement Reform
Excessive Force and police abuse is a major problem especially in communities of color. However, racism is far from the only factor. All citizens must help reduce police abuse even if they are never subject to being assaulted by police.
