Enoka Herat, ACLU-WA Policing and Immigration Policy Program Director, had the following statement: “The comments made by Officer Auderer are abhorrent and highlight the urgent need for a real transformation of policing culture and practices at the Seattle Police Department (SPD). At the very least, we expect officers to uphold the law, protect and serve all community members, and value each of our lives. To suggest Jaahnavi Kandula or anyone’s life has ‘limited value’ is a horrifying comment for an officer to make and leads us to question the department’s ability to keep people in Seattle safe."

Join us on Tuesday, September 12 at 6 PM for a conversation about reimagining the future of accountability for youth in our state.

BLOG POST: We all have a right to a fair trial in front of a jury of our peers. But what does it mean to have a jury of your peers — people like yourself, from your community — deciding your fate at trial? We’re hopeful a recent court decision clarified and reaffirmed that right for Black and brown defendants in Washington state.
