SUBJECT: Support SB20-217: The Enhance Law Enforcement Integrity Act


Dear Representative  ____,

As one of your constituents, I am asking you to support the swift passage of SB20-217: The Enhance Law Enforcement Integrity Act.

Beginning May 28th, Coloradans from across the state gathered in Denver to peacefully mourn the murder of George Floyd and to demand justice for the indiscriminate killings of Black persons, including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, and countless others. Instead of the respect and discourse they deserve, officers responded to these demonstrations with aggression.

Our nation has a proud history of strategic protest and civil disobedience as an effective means of challenging oppression and bringing about needed change. We recognize this history, particularly as we begin the month of June with its anniversaries of social justice milestones, protests, and civil disobedience such as Juneteenth, the LGBTQ Pride movement, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Violence and brutality at the hands of law enforcement is an unacceptable violation of the public’s trust. It is the obligation of law enforcement — whose professional duty it is to “protect and serve” the community — to de-escalate tension, especially during a protest, and to hold one another accountable.

In stark contrast to their sworn duty, some law enforcement officers were actually perpetrators of brutality against those they have vowed to protect and serve. On several occasions, these officers met nonviolent congregations of Coloradans and clearly-identified members of the press with volleys of tear gas, pepper balls, and flash bangs.

This cannot stand.

You have the power and responsibility to make a positive change towards justice in Colorado. 

Support SB20-217 to hold law enforcement accountable, end qualified immunity, and ensure the public is kept safe from police violence.

Justice cannot wait.

Your constituent,
