#8CantWait is a project by Campaign Zero that seeks to bring immediate change to police departments by encouraging adoption of 8 “use of force” policies like banning chokeholds and requiring de-escalation, some of which have already been adopted by some departments around the US. You can see how many policies your city has enacted, contact your local representative, donate, and read the use of force study.

In response to criticism following George Floyd’s death, #8CantWait published a statement acknowledging that policy-level changes won’t be enough to tackle the issues underlying death rates of black people by the hands of police without a system-wide paradigm shift that fundamentally reimagines the role of police with regard to public safety (like abolition).
