Call to Oregon Legislator

I’m calling in support of the 3 measures called for by the Oregon POC Caucus. The first is Senate Bill 1567. The second would require independent investigations when people are killed or seriously injured by police. The third would create a bipartisan work group to recommend changes to state law regarding physical force by police.
