Workers Have Rights.
We Know How To Protect Them.

For decades, we have been helping workers fight for their rights. Let us
balance the playing field for you.

MPD officers patrol Black neighborhoods and jump out of unmarked cars to surround, stop, and search individuals without basis. It is illegal, it is wrong, and it is making us less safe. For years, DC residents have asked MPD to stop this unconstitutional practice, but jump-outs are still being used to this day.
On May 9, attorneys representing a veteran MPD Sergeant who protested discriminatory police tactics, and people who have been subjected to these discriminatory tactics, wrote to Councilmember Brooke Pinto. They asked that she use her position as Chair of the DC Council’s Committee on Judiciary & Public Safety to call a hearing on MPD’s continued use of illegal jump-outs before Chief Contee departs MPD on June 3. Councilmember Pinto has not responded to this request.
Join ACLU-DC, DC Justice Lab, and others in voicing your demand for a hearing on jump-outs. With one-click, you can write a letter to Councilmember Pinto and other members of the Committee on Judiciary & Public Safety to ask them for a hearing on jump-outs by June 3.
