Physicians for Criminal Justice Reform, Inc. (www.pfcjreform.org) is calling for the federal government to require Implicit Racial Bias Training for police departments nationwide as a condition of eligibility for federal grant funding.
PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION. We need 100,000 signatures in the next 30 days at which time the White House will respond to our request, which means this petition must go viral. Please help us make that happen.
At least 9 people were killed last week as a result of our policing crisis. CDC data shows that Native Americans, Blacks, and Latinos are killed during police interactions at higher rates than Whites. Perceived criminality and implicit racial bias are significant drivers of this problem.
Research shows that police who are made aware of their implicit biases are motivated and able to implement unbiased policing behavior.
The federal government should immediately require all police departments to implement implicit racial bias training for their officers.
