On March 5th, Vote NO on Prop E

Lee esta pagina en español.


The ACLU of Northern California strongly opposes Proposition E on the March 5, 2024 ballot. The measure would reduce transparency around police use of force, authorize the use of invasive secret surveillance technology, and weaken independent oversight of the San Francisco Police Department.

Prop E is about politics, not public safety. It is a rash attempt to exploit voters’ frustrations with crime to distract from an unpopular mayor’s record and hand more power to the SFPD. Prop E would recklessly undermine hard-won reforms designed to hold police accountable and protect the public from abuse.

Vote NO on Prop E on March 5, 2024.
