Initiative 940 Education Forum

UUC’s Racial Justice Team is offering an educational forum on Initiative 940, the “Law Enforcement Training and Community Safety Act,” on Sunday, September 10, from 12:30 – 2 PM in Alcott. A representative from De-Escalate Washington will join us.

The proposed act would require law enforcement officers to obtain violence de-escalation and mental health training to increase their skills to resolve conflicts without the use of physical or deadly force. Our Racial Justice Team is supporting the initiative’s sponsor, De-Escalate Washington, by collecting petition signatures to get this state initiative on the ballot.
