End The Pentagon To Police Pipeline

Ring The Alarm

There’s absolutely no reason for police forces across the nation to have armor-piercing firearms and ammunition, bayonets, grenade launchers and grenades, combat tracked vehicles, or drones. These weapons of war don’t make it easier to solve crimes, and they don’t make Americans safer!

It’s time to end the militarization of America’s police forces by Immediately bringing the bipartisan amendment to the National Defence Authorization Act to a vote!

Why is this important?

Scenes of highly militarized police roaming major American cities with tanks, shooting peaceful protesters, journalists, and even lawmakers with rubber bullets and teargas have shocked the nation, and the world. Now Senators Schatz, Murkowski, Harris, and Paul have submitted an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to “limit the transfer of certain surplus military-grade equipment to local law enforcement agencies across the country.”

A powerful constituency of police unions and “tough on crime” lawmakers are opposing the amendment - but our campaign can help build grassroots support, and educate more people about the dangerous police militarization pipeline.

Sign on to show your support for this bipartisan effort to get military-style weapons out of the hands of local police forces - we’ll need a massive grassroots groundswell to make this happen!
