Here it is! @NAACP_LDF’s Police Union Contract Toolkit. We’ve reviewed contracts from 82 cities; identified provisions that may interfere w/prompt investigation & acccountability for serious misconduct; & dates when the contracts expire. All searchable. https://t.co/oCwHaAapmw

“Identifying and eliminating provisions in police union contracts that undermine the ability to hold ofcrs accountable for serious misconduct is critical to addressing the culture of impunity in policing.” Now there’s a tool to help communities address this issue. @NAACP_LDF https://t.co/P6p6wRkfVZ

Our work in the streets and calls for justice are slowly pushing this country toward progress. We can continue to move the needle by pushing back against dangerous provisions included in many police union contracts. @NAACP_LDF 's toolkit can help.

If we continue putting pressure on officials and continuously beating the drum to end impunity for officer misconduct, we can dismantle policies that shield officers from the consequences of unlawful policing.

.@NAACP_LDF's toolkit is broken down into six areas activists need to watch when reviewing police union contracts. We detail how these provisions can shield officers from discipline for their misconduct and identify critical questions activists need to ask while reviewing. https://t.co/66YtKVKdi7

By advocating for reforms in police union contracts, communities can create a seat for themselves at the bargaining table. @NAACP_LDF has created a toolkit so you can engage in negotiations armed with the tools you’ll need to create change. https://t.co/1roQhe4nuF

"...#SCOTUS made clear that federal anti-discrimination laws protect LGBTQ people. That empowers fed agencies to step in & prevent discrimination against LGBTQ people...It's disappointing that HHS is refusing to do so." -LDF Asst Counsel @ashokgchandran https://t.co/oV6H1mNDPV

With the effects of the pandemic impeding people's ability to access the ballot, we need to make sure the November election is as safe, secure, and accessible as possible. As @peter_f_martin details, that starts with online voter registration. https://t.co/xMCsUBZGiY
