Tell your CA Legislators: Help end Civil Asset Forfeiture Abuse!

April 23, 2016

Police should not be allowed to legally take innocent people’s cash and property and then keep a portion of the loot. But it’s happening across the country everyday through an unjust, racist policy leftover from Ronald Reagan’s failed War on Drugs called Civil Asset Forfeiture.

Civil Asset Forfeiture gives police a free pass to impose on people’s civil rights and disproportionately steal from low-income people of color without even charging someone with a crime. In California alone, police pocketed nearly $600 MILLION from Civil Asset Forfeiture between 2006 and 2013.

It’s legalized robbery. And it’s past time for California to put an end to it.
