Today’s Action: Demilitarize the police for Biden’s 100th day in office!

Today is President Biden’s 100th day in office! He enjoys high approval ratings thanks to his speedy rollout of the vaccination and economic recovery, and ending many of Trump’s most hateful programs. And while some of his goals are still in progress, there’s a big campaign trail promise he was expected to hit that we haven’t seen any movement on.

Since 1997, the Department of Defense 1033 Program has transferred $7.4 billion in surplus military supplies to our local, state, and federal law enforcement. Sniper rifles, armored vehicles, tear gas, grenades, drones, and aircraft…weapons of war in our local neighborhoods.

Biden’s campaign promise to end the 1033 Program hasn’t come true – yet – but he could today with an executive order.

Call or email your Members of Congress TODAY and tell them to urge President Biden to keep his promise and END the 1033 Program! Then, tweet it directly to Biden (@POTUS and @JoeBiden) with the hashtag #End1033.

Surplus military equipment has not at all prevented violent crime or kept law enforcement safer (which is the stated goal). But it has created an attitude within law enforcement that it is literally “at war” with the people it’s supposed to be protecting…

…such as in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 when the protests over Michael Brown’s death by law enforcement resulted in local police showing up in tanks and aiming assault rifles at protesters. Outside of protests, law enforcement use their deadly military toys in entirely unnecessary situations, often leading to violent escalation in routine policing activities. And the wielding of military equipment itself on people of color vs. white people matches the overall trends of who’s on the receiving end of police brutality in general.

It’s time for Biden to follow through on his promise and end this brutal program.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they push President Biden to end the deadly 1033 Program TODAY. Then, tweet it directly to Biden (@POTUS and @JoeBiden) with the hashtag #End1033.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to censure McConnell for voting to acquit Trump and then admitting he was guilty, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
