Campaign Zero encourages policymakers to focus on solutions with the strongest evidence of effectiveness at reducing police violence. Our platform is continuously updated in response to the findings and insights of researchers and organizers nationwide. Given the range of new research studies on implicit bias training, mental health training, community representation in policing, and body cameras finding little to no evidence of effectiveness at reducing police violence, we have flagged these policy areas with ⚠️ disclaimer.

Yet, despite this progress, more comprehensive action is needed. Use the tools below to track legislation impacting your community and hold your representatives accountable for taking meaningful action to end police violence. This page will be continuously updated. Email [email protected] to share your feedback.
Lookup your state and federal representatives and tell them to pass the legislation immediately to end police violence. Share the Campaign Zero policy agenda with them and urge them to adopt it in your community.
*For this analysis, legislation was reviewed in every state, the federal government, and a range of major cities to identify laws that have been enacted or are currently being considered that include one or more Campaign Zero recommendations. In addition to their positive aspects, some of these bills also include language that should be removed, improved, and/or replaced to more effectively address police violence and ensure accountability. The purpose of this analysis is not to endorse particular pieces of legislation, but to empower communities to hold their representatives accountable for taking action to end police violence.
*The advocacy tool includes bills that are currently being considered and bills that have been voted on by a state's full house (lower) or senate (upper) chamber where vote roll call information is available at OpenStates.org. More bills will be added as they are introduced by legislators.
