The Policing Indigenous Communities Initiative

The Policing Indigenous Communities Initiative is a multi-year and multi-pronged public legal education and law reform project whose goal is to address the disproportionate impact of policing on Indigenous communities in British Columbia.

Building on the BC Civil Liberties Association’s 56-year history of work on police accountability, we are partnering with leading Indigenous organizations in the province, such as the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, to transform the laws and policies that perpetuate the over-representation of Indigenous people in the law enforcement and criminal justice systems.

The Initiative has three components which will be launched throughout 2019. Explore them by clicking the buttons below:
