The California Assembly Public Safety Committee decided to advance AB 392 (the California Act to Save Lives), which San Diego Assemblymember Shirley Weber drafted and introduced. The San Diego Organizing Project applauds this progress and will continue to stand by AB 392, organizing against unfair and racist systems hurting our communities.
“Today’s good news on the California Act to Save Lives means we are one step closer to a solution to protect our communities,” said Deacon Tom Cartwright, San Diego Organizing Project leader at City of Hope International Church. “No one should fear for their safety in the presence of law enforcement.”
SDOP works to ensure positive, collaborative relationships between police and our communities. Read more about SDOP’s support of AB 392 in the Times of San Diego.
For years, SDOP leaders have worked on policing issues through street-level work with gangs, community outreach and organizing in response to violence. Our mission in ending gun violence and mass incarceration is to support clergy in their efforts to improve police-community relations.
