What does Black Lives Matter Utah Want?
What Is Black Lives Matter Utah Doing to Affect Police Reform?
We have been meeting with police for three years, along with the CAG (Community Activist Group). Due to these meetings, we have implemented stronger data collection, de-escalation trainings, diversity trainings, and the implementation of less-than-lethal weapons, among other initiatives. We have a long way to go, but we have been working diligently.
Currently, we are meeting with legislators regarding police reform bills. We are also attending meetings with legislators and the Department of Public Safety.
In addition, we are protesting unjust practices in policing and prosecution. We are holding educational panels with businesses, non-profits, and community members to educate them about police reform.
Furthermore, we are in discussions with a new business, which we believe will save thousands of lives by eliminating the need to call the police. We have been updating our members through our daily newsletter.
