Greetings to supporters of reform of the Citizens Review Board on Police Practices (CRB).  As you know, Women Occupy San Diego (WOSD) has worked on this issue for many years and in 2016 the City Council placed Measure G on the ballot, which they wrote taking a few ideas from us.  Measure G passed with 83% of the vote.  But it is only a very small first step.  We have rewritten our proposed CRB Charter Amendment, changing the CRB from a "review board" to an Independent Commission, similar to the Ethics Commission. 
A copy of our proposal can be
read here.
 
The new Commission on Police Reform
City Charter Amendment 
has been submitted and is being presented at the April 11th Rules Committee Meeting!

We will be asking the Rules Committee to send the proposal to the full City Council to have them put it on the November 2018 ballot.


Please Attend
the San Diego City Council
Rules Committee meeting!


Wednesday, April 11 @ 1PM
202 C Street
City Council Committee Room, 12th Floor


We need everyone to attend and support the proposed
Amendment to the City Charter.  You can read the amendment here.


Arrive at 12:30 to assure a seat.
