Ed. note: Pax Christi USA has signed this petition.

skin_color_michael_fleshman_flickrIn California, black people and Latinos are searched by police at three and two times the rate of whites, respectively—due to the harmful and unjust practice of racial and identity profiling.

But the California state legislature just voted through a landmark bill, AB 953, that will help eliminate racial and identity profiling, and improve law enforcement transparency and accountability.

The bill is on Governor Brown’s desk right now. This is an incredible opportunity to make concrete change in California’s criminal justice system. Let’s make sure Governor Brown seizes it.

Sign the petition: Governor Brown, help eliminate racial and identity profiling and improve law enforcement transparency and accountability. Sign AB 953 into law.
