This week, Los Angeles City voters passed Charter Amendment C, a dangerous ballot measure that weakens police accountability in our city. Though the police union succeeded in passing Amendment C, we are proud to have stood with Black Lives Matter LA, the ACLU of Southern California, and the rest of the #NoOnC coalition to educate and mobilize the Jewish community in support of justice for victims of police violence.
Jewish Angelenos have the opportunity next Tuesday to defeat Amendment C here in LA — a measure on the ballot in our city election that has the potential to weaken accountability for the LAPD, and to deny justice for victims of police violence.

Our volunteer-created 2016 California Voter Guide provided tens of thousands of Jewish voters with recommendations on all 17 propositions that were on the ballot. To win on our priority issues, leaders canvassed across the state, held house parties and lectures, and conducted phone banks. In total, we won on all but two of the propositions — a huge victory for progressive policies on taxation, criminal justice reform, and more.
