A series of bills being considered on February 16th by the Indiana General Assembly (SB 168, SB 311 and SB 394) propose aggressive measures that, if passed, would allow the State of Indiana to seize control of local police departments and undo positive progress toward community-based policing. We need your help to call on state senators and ask them to vote against this breach of local control. You can do this by using the links below to sign written testimony that will be submitted to the Senate Corrections and Criminal Law Committee, call your senator, and/or write your senator an email.
- Sign the Written Testimony (Deadline to sign is end of day Thursday, February 11)
- Call your Senator (Call your senator before the hearing on Tuesday, February 16)
- Write your Senator (Write your senator before the hearing on Tuesday, February 16)
As Indiana’s largest network of nonprofit and human service organizations, we know the most effective solutions to complex issues like poverty or police reform are informed by and developed with members of our communities, especially those who are most affected by the issue.
Please use the links above to sign the written testimony, call, and/or write your state senator to prevent the undoing of community-based policing reforms and let them know that local problems call for local solutions.
Thank you for advocating for measures that make Indiana a great place to live, work and thrive – for everyone in our community. United Way of Central Indiana is working in partnership with the Indianapolis Urban League on issues such as this to advance racial equity through public policy.
