To be voted on Sept. 9, 2020

Resolution proposed by Jeff Schwartz to be voted on at the September 9, 2020, general meeting of the Culver City Democratic Club:

Resolution on Culver City Police Officers Association’s public relations campaign against Culver City Action Network

Whereas police have a professional duty to protect and serve every community member;

Whereas police have too often surveilled, harassed, and attacked activists in the labor, civil rights, antiwar, gay liberation, and other progressive movements;

Whereas analysis of CCPD arrest records shows similar over-policing of Black and Latinx people;

Whereas right-wing conspiracy theories and vigilantism are spreading under the brand of “law and order;” and

Whereas the Culver City Action Network has worked publicly in Culver City to protect, educate and empower our most vulnerable community members; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, that the Culver City Democratic Club joins City Council Members Alex Fisch, Daniel Lee, Meghan Sahli-Wells, and Thomas Small in condemning the Culver City Police Officers Association’s public relations campaign attempting to demonize the Culver City Action Network, Kelly and John Kent, and other local activists seeking to reimagine public safety in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
