Updates & Resources

  1. Update Advocates are Calling on Congress to Demilitarize Policing: Here’s the Next Step 

    The militarization of police is a key factor in the policing crisis we face today. Congress has opportunities to reform the 1033 program this year and limit the Department of Defense’s practice of transferring surplus military grade equipment to local police departments.

  2. Update Sen. McConnell’s COVID-19 Relief Package is Woefully Inadequate 

    As expanded unemployment benefits and eviction moratoriums expire, Senate leadership released a package of multiple bills to address the economic fallout from COVID-19. The package falls dramatically short and fails to address the unprecedented need experienced by many throughout the country.

  3. Background Responding to the Coronavirus 

    The coronavirus pandemic is a generational threat, and its impacts will be felt by all of us. But know this: Our work for peace and justice will go on. Here’s how we will continue our advocacy in the face of COVID-19 and how you can join us.
