“Hi, my name is ____ and I live in ____. I’m calling to ask for your support on AB 392, Assemblymember Weber’s bill to update California’s outdated use of force laws to ensure that police officers avoid using deadly force at every possible opportunity.
Officers at agencies with stricter use of force policies kill fewer people and are less likely to be killed or seriously injured themselves. In the Jewish community, we are taught that saving one life is saving a whole world, so I urge you to vote ‘Aye’ on AB 392 and lead the Jewish Caucus to support this needed bill.
In addition, I ask you to please support the strong language of the bill that impacted families are asking for: that police should only use deadly force when necessary, use de-escalation whenever possible, and accountability when officers use unnecessary force. Thank you.”
