Improving police accountability
The police occupy a uniquely powerful role in our society. For people who are marginalized as a result of things like poverty, disability, or ethnicity, that power can be experienced as oppressive. Far too often, police are their first point of contact when someone is in the midst of a crisis. That’s why it’s critical that law enforcement be responsive to the needs of diverse communities. Pivot’s Police Accountability campaign works with these communities to establish a system of transparent and accountable policing that ends the criminalization of poverty and holds law enforcement responsible for discrimination or disproportionate use of force.
