CAPCR COB District Organizing Campaign Plan & Structure
Residents of the City of St. Louis should join the District Organizing Circle for their Ward.
Non-City Residents who want to be involved can select a District Organizing Circle of their choice.
Goals of the COB Campaign are:
1. To increase police accountability by ensuring the implementation of an effective civilian oversight board by a) passing Board Bill 208 and b) passing the two companion bills to BB#208 that create an independent department and gives the COB subpoena power;
2. To build Organizing Circles in the COB districts that educate and organize residents around the COB legislation; to monitor/facilitate/protect the democratic processes for selection of COB.
3. To de-criminalize being African American, especially for young, black males.
4. To explore innovative alternatives to policing practices for public safety.
