News came out this week that the Louisiana officers who fatally shot Alton Sterling last summer will not be charged by the Justice Department. As Jews, we stand outraged and in solidarity with the movement for Black lives to demand police accountability and justice.
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.
Bend the Arc stands with Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, the ACLU of Southern California, Dignity and Power Now, LA Voice and dozens of other community organizations who oppose this measure and are turning out to the polls next Tuesday, May 16th, to oppose Amendment C.
