Also shared is An Advocacy Toolkit for Fair, Safe and Effective Community Policing which can be found here, https://www.obama.org/wp-content/uploads/Toolkit.pdf, from the Obama Foundation website. Additionally, a list of resources to be informed about police violence and antiracism in America and opportunities to be engaged can be found here: https://www.obama.org/anguish-and-action/.
