Criminalization & Policing Campaign
Pivot seeks a shift from law enforcement towards anti-stigma work, peer leadership, and inclusion.
Pivot works alongside people who are marginalized as a result of poverty, disability, social condition, or race. We use our tools to address the criminalization of poverty and hold law enforcement responsible for discrimination or use of force. Our tools include community-based advocacy, public legal education, media and strategic litigation.
Accountability alone will not resolve the oppression people face when interacting with the police, but it’s an important tool to keep communities safer.
