HOUSTON – The Mayor’s Task Force on Policing Reform today released its recommendations. Earlier in July, the #Right2Justice Coalition and other local community groups released a report, “Justice Can’t Wait,” which found racial disparities by police with recommendations that should be enacted immediately.

Nick Hudson, policy & advocacy strategist for the ACLU of Texas, had the following reaction:

“We are glad to see the Mayor’s Task Force adopt many of the recommendations of the Justice Can’t Wait agenda. Now, we need Mayor Turner, Chief Acevedo, and members of City Council to act immediately and introduce ordinances based on the recommendations.”
