No matter where we live in Washington, most of us believe the law should apply to everyone equally. That’s why holding police officers accountable for breaking the law is so important. But right now, most violations by police go unpunished, as local oversight is hamstrung.

As a result, we’re supporting a bill to create truly independent investigations into police misconduct by giving the Attorney General’s office the power to investigate patterns of misconduct when law enforcement violates the constitutional rights of all Washingtonians!

This legislation is coming up for a vote soon, but Republican members of the House have introduced “poison pill amendments” meant to kill the bill in all but name. We need lawmakers to hear our voices loud and clear that we want House Bill 1445 passed without these amendments to hold our criminal legal system to the same standards that it holds all of us. Will you send a message to your lawmakers today?

We can’t let Republican Representatives like Suzanne Schmidt and April Connors sink this important bill for accountability across our state.

Thanks for all that you do,
Rosey and the entire team at Fuse

P.S. Creating true accountability for rotten cops is going to take a lot of work to achieve. Will you chip in $5 now to help us pass these critical progressive reforms?
