ONUS is pleased to announce the creation of a National Victims of Police Brutality and Terrorism Committee. The Committee is bringing together people from across the nation who have been victimized by law enforcement.The committee’s primary goal is to ensure that real solutions are enacted into law to end unjustified police killings. The committee has agreed to focus on ensuring that The Uniform Reporting Law Enforcement Improvement Act (URLEIA) is enacted into law. That means finding a congressional sponsor and then ensuring the bill is enacted into law without being watered down. If you know of someone who has been brutalized by law enforcement or if you have been the victim of a brutal encounter with law enforcement, please contact us at 202.817.1331 and let us know you want to take an active role with the committee. Any family that has been a victim of police brutality is a defacto (automatic) member of the national committee. We need you to get involved and take an active role in your community in helping to enact The Uniform Reporting Law Enforcement Improvement Act (URLEIA).
