Police Reform is currently under active consideration by the Massachusetts legislature. The House and Senate are hung up on the membership of a new state oversight panel and whether to remove protections police are entitled to against civil lawsuits. We invite you to join the Martha’s Vineyard Branch of the NAACP as we talk with our local elected officials, community activists and law enforcement about police reform's present status.
