Indianapolis Urban League In Action Against Anti-Community Policing Bills
and In Support of Root Cause Solutions
From January to April 2021, we tracked over 100 bills and weighed in against Anti-Community Policing Bills (HB 1033) and fighting for police reform (HB1006), and juvenile reform (SB 368), and were active at the Indiana General Assembly in support of common-sense police reform legislation.
We continue to stand in solidarity with the business community, advocacy organizations, and the citizens who marched this summer to improve police and community relations. This is the time to advocate not only for positive police reform and against anti-community policing legislation, but we also must support root cause solutions combating food deserts, improving tenant-landlord relationships, supporting mental health, and advocating for improvements in education.
We addressed efforts to chill the right to protest (194).
This is not an exhaustive list of what happened at the Indiana General Assembly. But after a bit of a break, we will begin the process of strategizing on how to complete our unfinished business. View our full Legislative Summary with wins and unfinished business.
We appreciate all of the support our team received throughout this legislative process. Your advocacy was key on both offense and defense. We stopped a lot of bad bills and had a few wins of our own. More significantly, we set up our advocacy for the future.
Yours in service,
IUL Advocacy Team
