Campaign Zero From Black Lives Matter


Secular Talk

Black Lives Matter has a set of new policies – called “Campaign Zero” – that they would like politicians to address.

The Huffington Post:

“A year after demonstrations in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson launched the Black Lives Matter movement, some of the most prominent voices in the campaign to reform policing in the United States introduced a detailed list of specific proposals that they want to bring about ‘a world where the police don’t kill people.'”

In related news, presidential candidate (and Wisconsin governor) Scott Walker stumbled through a question Friday about whether he would meet with representatives of the Black Lives Matter movement.

When asked whether he’d be willing to meet with activists, Walker dismissed the possibility by saying, “Who knows who that is?”

“I meet with voters. Who knows who that is,” Walker said, apparently referring to Black Lives Matter leaders.
