Sexual assault is the second most frequently reported type of misconduct by police.  Predatory members of the police often prey on people who use drugs, people who have prior arrest records, immigrants, people with disabilities, and sex workers.  However, the harm done to individuals and communities through police sexual misconduct is felt by everyone. When we speak out against police violence, we must include sexual assault and harassment.
Watch our next Act and Learn webinar, Seeking Justice: Sexual Assaults by Police. We will dive deep into the issue of sexual misconduct by police, and learn from activists seeking justice for survivors in the courts and through grassroots organizing.
