We submitted a letter regarding building trust and legitimacy in law enforcement to the President's Task Force on Policing in the 21st Century on January 21, 2015.

Legal Momentum believes that it is crucial that the Task Force study and address the many ways in which women and girls, particularly in communities of color, are adversely impacted by actions taken by law enforcement. We also ask the Task Force to keep in mind that the overpolicing of communities of color may make women of color reluctant to seek law enforcement intervention, even when it is desperately needed.
