Campaign Zero—an initiative started by prominent members of the Black Lives Matter movement—released a set of policy solutions to curb police violence and discrimination in the wake of several high-profile police killings, including that of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on August 9, 2014. The group’s goal is to end police violence in America, so no more deaths like this occur.

Some of Campaign Zero’s key recommendations that impact youth include:

  • End Broken Windows Policing
  • Establish Alternative Approaches to Mental Health Crises
  • Limit Use of Force
  • Invest in Rigorous and Sustained Training
