Communities of Color Urge Policing Changes before Assembly Committee

An assembly committee on the status of boys and men of color held a hearing on community safety and justice issues, with testimony from activists and community groups calling for more spending on social programs instead of policing. The hearing comes in the wake of continued controversy over police use of force, including police killings of unarmed African American and Latino civilians in California and across the nation.
