> Aram,
>
> The stories are all too tragic and familiar: Michael Brown in Ferguson. Tamir Rice in Cleveland. Eric Garner in New York City. Alex Nieto in San Francisco. And so many more.
>
> Racial profiling and excessive use of force by the police are serious problems in this country. But here in California, you can take action – right now – to address them.
>
> On Tuesday, the Assembly Public Safety Committee begins debate on two important bills to end racial profiling (AB 935) and stop the excessive use of force (AB 619). If approved by the Legislature and signed by Governor Brown into law, California can truly lead by ensuring law enforcement personnel uphold our civil liberties.
>
> The personal stories of real Californians can make a big impact in Tuesday's hearing. We need legislators to hear about the real-life impacts of racial profiling and excessive use of force, first-hand.
>
> If you or someone you know has experienced racial profiling or excessive use of force, please share your story with us now. We will submit comments to the Assembly Public Safety Committee before Tuesday's hearing, and show the importance of AB 935 and AB 619!
>
> These two bills are particularly timely, as numerous deaths at the hands of law enforcement over the course of the past year have broken the hearts of many. These tragedies have sparked a critical conversation about race, law enforcement agencies, and the communities they serve.
>
> What we do now will determine the future of fair policing and accountable law enforcement in our state.
>
> Share your story and submit a public comment to support AB 935 and AB 619 today. We need to make sure that California legislators hear from all of us, right now – before Tuesday's crucial hearing.
>
> Thanks for your support,
