Katy Perry is encouraging her fans to support a series of new policies proposed by Campaign Zero, an organization dedicated to stopping police brutality.
Saying that local leaders have the power to put such policies in place, the singer said, “These are the stepping stones to the bigger changes that we are all working for.”
Katy laid out three of the strategies she wants LA Mayor Eric Garcetti to enact immediately. “Require warning before shooting • exhaust all alternatives before shooting • require all force be reported,” she said on social media, concluding with the promise: “I will be calling my mayor TODAY.”
Perry also included a letter fans can copy and paste should they prefer emailing Mayor Garcetti, instead. Campaign Zero estimates that if local municipalities implement their eight proposed policy changes, police violence will fall by 72%.
