WACDA Policy & Advocacy

Advocacy Opportunity: Submit Written Testimony About Police Use of Force on People with Disabilities.

The Washington Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights is soliciting written comments from the public on the disproportionate impact of police use of force until July 22, 2021. The committee addresses all civil rights issues. As a result, WACDA encourages our supporters to submit testimony to ensure that disability rights concerns regarding police use of force are represented.

 

You can submit written or recorded testimony by email to Brooke Peery at bpeery@usccr.gov by Thursday, July 22, 2021. (Statements can be submitted in any language or format, i.e. written, voice memo, video, etc., that you find accessible).
