#8cantwait

Over 1,000 people are killed by police every year in America. Campaign Zero was formed in 2015 by a group of activists and researchers with the goal of collecting and publicizing police department data and practices in order to understand how to significantly reduce police violence.


Data shows that if police departments adopt eight reforms of when and how they use force there will be a significant drop in police violence—as much as 72% if all eight are followed together. The policies are as follows::

  1. Ban Chokeholds and Strangleholds

  2. Require De-Escalation

  3. Require Warning Before Shooting

  4. Exhaust All Alternatives Before Shooting

  5. Duty to Intervene

  6. Ban Shooting at Moving Vehicles

  7. Establish Use of Force Continuum

  8. Require All Force to Be Reported

Campaign Zero's #8CANTWAIT project encourages people to call on local, state, and federal lawmakers to take immediate action to adopt these data-driven policy solutions to end police violence and hold police accountable.

If you want to learn more about Campaign Zero's mission, their website has a wealth of resources, including research studies, articles, and other documents about the historical context, effectiveness, and key considerations for implementing Campaign Zero policy solutions.
