It’s important for us to understand which levels of government have the biggest impact on our criminal justice system and police practices… the elected officials who matter most in reforming police departments and the criminal justice system work at the state and local levels.
If we want to bring about real change, then the choice isn’t between protest and politics. We have to do both. We have to mobilize to raise awareness, and we have to organize and cast our ballots to make sure that we elect candidates who will act on reform.Barack Obama
