Today’s Action: End qualified immunity to save Black lives

Qualified immunity: the legal precedent that a police officer cannot be charged with committing excessive force unless there’s a previous court case ruling barring that particular type of excessive force under those exact circumstances.

What began (allegedly) as an attempt to protect cops from frivolous lawsuits has quickly spiraled into near-universal protection for law enforcement, giving police officers the ability to violate rights…as long as it’s done in an original way.

The call to end qualified immunity has been on the forefront of the protests and movement to end police brutality toward Black people. That’s because qualified immunity offers cops sweeping protections against the endless variety of crimes they commit – from shooting a ten-year-old child bystander, to stealing $225,000 from a pair of businessmen under search warrant, to destroying a family’s home with tear gas grenades, to exactly the type of excessive force that killed George Floyd.

Call or email your Members of Congress to demand an end to qualified immunity for law enforcement.

Murders extremely similar to George Floyd’s have been thrown out in court, the officers free to continue acting disgracefully, simply because qualified immunity established there was no precedent. And Floyd’s killers may receive the same protections, for the exact same reason.

If we are ever going to be able to hold cops accountable for their systemic excessive acts of violence against our Black communities, ending qualified immunity is one of the first steps.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress to end qualified immunity – we must be able to hold killer cops accountable.
