Law Enforcement & Criminal Justice
Murders of unarmed Black men & women at the hands of police have swept the world by storm in recent months, but the people of WA have experienced this for far too long. Pierce county police lead the state in murders of unarmed Black people without justice served
. Given this traumatic reality, LegallyBLACK has the following demands for police transformation:
Mandatory body cameras for all Pierce County law enforcement, revoke qualified immunity, reform law enforcement recruitment and training programs, publicize misconduct reports, adopt '8 Can't Wait' policies.

Educating the community and providing helpful resources through public events, workshops, programs, schools, public forums and more!
