WHAT IS THE COALITION?
The CC4J Coalition is an alliance of community organizations and individuals who support transforming local law enforcement for the improved health and safety of our community. Many community members & organizations are joining our Coalition. We know there is power in numbers. Contact us below.
WHY JOIN US?
Police reform is happening across the nation. CC4J was founded in 2017 in response to the police killing of a young black man in Chico experiencing a mental health crisis. Over the years CC4J has grown and continues to grow in its advocacy for changes in the culture of policing. We have developed an Action Plan to Transform Policing in Chico, and work toward its implementation. We meet with City Officials, present at City Council meetings, research “best practices” and more! A “Coalition” in support of our Action Plan makes it harder for public officials to ignore us.
