Stand With Me to #EndPoliceTerror
My friend Brandon founded Raheem after he lost his life partner to police violence during a routine traffic stop. The officer had a history of being physically abusive, particularly during traffic stops, but no one had ever reported him.
In fact, 95% of people do not report police violence, and therefore oversight boards miss the opportunity to have these experiences shape their policy agenda.
Raheem is working to change that.
Raheem engages communities who’ve been directly impacted by policing to hear their stories about officer conduct that usually go unreported. Then we use this information to help local, independent investigators hold police officers accountable and support community-led oversight structures in advancing policies to end police violence.
Raheem uses data to identify places with the highest rates of police violence in the country. We partner with community oversight structures in these areas to collect firsthand reports of police conduct and help people file formal complaints that can lead to officers being held accountable. Our digital outreach and organizing strategy enables us to reach people who’ve been recently impacted by policing and connect them to oversight boards, organizations, and advocacy campaigns that can help them seek justice and accountability for police violence.
