This week, we were heartened to see Governor Gavin Newsom sign AB 392 into law authored by Assemblymember Shirley Weber. California now has one of the country’s toughest pieces of legislation limiting police officers’ use of force and preserving life. Congratulations to the families and advocates that fought so fiercely for this important win.
