Billie Eilish, Rihanna, Meek Mill, Mariah Carey and Megan Thee Stallion are among the hundreds of artists, actors and celebrities that have signed an open letter supporting 2 police reform bills in California.

SB 731 would set a system to reverse a police officer certification determined by criminal conviction and serious misconduct. SB 776 would boost transparency in cases of use of force incidents involving police.

“While the killing of George Floyd motivated continued outrage, protests, and reporting, the people of California have long known the need to properly address the activities and liability of authorities,” the letter states.

“For too long, judges have undermined the purpose of the State’s laws, allowing poor police officers to violate the rights of the things they are meant to protect. In addition, a lack of transparency and a deficient recordation program has shielded officers who abuse their authority and tarnish the integrity of California’s law enforcement. We can fix this.”
