Suggested call script: My name is —- and I’m a resident of District —-. I’m calling to ask you to support Council Bill 120142, which will prohibit the Seattle Police Department from training with countries that are committing human rights abuses. A safe and healthy Seattle must be grounded in our city’s respect for the human rights and dignity of all people. SPD has shown documented patterns of violence and racism and is under court supervision for excessive force and racially biased policing. We need to focus on making Seattle safer and should not be spending money to train with other countries who are violating human rights. Investing in community makes us safe, not racist and militarized policing. It must be illegal for SPD to train with any military and police forces that violate human rights. Thank you for voting yes on CB 120142 and for supporting the human rights of all people in Seattle and throughout the world.
In a few clicks, send a letter to Seattle City Councilmembers and tell them why you support CB 120142.
Get your community organizations, religious institutions, unions, and local businesses to endorse our open letter calling on Seattle City Council to End the Deadly Exchange.
