Remove Cops from Traffic Stops!

An estimated 10% of police killings begin as simple traffic encounters. Since 2017, police in the U.S. have killed nearly 600 people during traffic stops, and the numbers continue to rise.

If we #defundthepolice and invest in community approaches to public safety—like having trained, unarmed professionals serve as first responders to traffic incidents—we could avoid the loss of Black life at the hands of racist policing.

If you believe that we need community-based policies to remove armed police officers from traffic-related incidents, send a letter to your representative and tell them to get to work!
