*For this analysis, legislation was reviewed in every state, the federal government, and a range of major cities to identify laws that have been enacted or are currently being considered that include one or more Campaign Zero recommendations. In addition to their positive aspects, some of these bills also include language that should be removed, improved, and/or replaced to more effectively address police violence and ensure accountability. The purpose of this analysis is not to endorse particular pieces of legislation, but to empower communities to hold their representatives accountable for taking action to end police violence.
*The advocacy tool includes bills that are currently being considered and bills that have been voted on by a state's full house (lower) or senate (upper) chamber where vote roll call information is available at OpenStates.org. More bills will be added as they are introduced by legislators.
