Providence community groups and leaders have drawn up a plan for an alternate history for the police and the public, and if you live in Providence, you can encourage your councilperson to support it.
Read about the Providence Community Safety Act (Spanish at the top, scroll down for English).
If you live in Providence, please write to your city council member and ask them to support and pass the Providence Community Safety Act. If you don’t know who they are, there’s a list by ward here, including email addresses to use.
The “Who’s my councilperson?” button doesn’t seem to be working, but you can zoom in and look for your street on this map to find your ward.
I wrote to my councilperson yesterday and if you would like to use the letter I wrote as a template, please write to me at my gmail address, publiclycomplex.
