De-Militarize the Police

Donald Trump has just undone limitations on a program that unloads old war weaponry on domestic police departments.

Please sign this petition to the U.S. Congress:

It's time to stop allowing presidents to make and unmake the law on police weaponry. Congress must ban the provision of any weapons of war or war training to police.
