TELL DC COUNCIL: STOP POLICE UNION CONTROL!

The District of Columbia is once again negotiating a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the union representing the District's Metropolitan Police Department. Police unions protect killer cops, and the road to abolition and a safe community is to disrupt and dismantle their control over our communities and the DC council. This fight is one of transparency and accountability versus the white boys club and DC FOP Power. It's the public's responsibility to intervene in this CBA.

Together we can roll back the MPD's tide of violence and misery. Please join Defund MPD Coalition members: BLM-DC, Black Youth Project 100 DC, DC Fair Food Network, DC Working Families Party, Law 4 Black Lives DC, Metro DC DSA, National Women's Law Center United, Nonprofit Professional Employees Union, Sanctuary DMV, Stop Police Terror Project DC, and Sunrise Movement DC in our letter-writing campaign to let Mayor Bowser and DC Council know that we will not tolerate police violence in our city. The letter outlines our demands for amendments that must be included in the next CBA. It is our elected officials' duty to represent the interests of the people and our duty to hold them accountable.

Sending a letter using Action Network is simple and only takes a few minutes. Just input your information and add any personal touches you wish to include in the body template. By taking this action you agree to receive future updates from the Defund MPD coalition.

Thank you for being a part of this fight.
