The Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and PolicyLink have created Building Momentum from the Ground Up: A Toolkit for Promoting Justice in Policing. The Toolkit is a direct response to organizers, elected officials, and community members from across the country seeking support and resources for campaign aimed at transforming the policies and practices of local law enforcement. The Toolkit reflects the aspirations of many and is the product of conversations with base building organizations and local elected officials.
The Toolkit elevates fifteen policy reforms. Not all of the reforms included are ideal for all com- munities. Some, such as body cameras, are controversial. The aim of the Toolkit is not to suggest that these are the fifteen best or most important reforms. Instead, the Toolkit provides resources, information and sometimes precautions about reforms that have been enacted, as well as more visionary proposals.
