Upworthy recently published a new piece on the Campaign To End Qualified Immunity featuring Campaign Co-Chairs Ben Cohen And Jerry Greenfield.
As the article explains:
“The Campaign to End Qualified Immunity hopes to raise awareness and educate citizens about qualified immunity, eventually building support for a federal mandate ending the controversial law. The campaign encourages the public to get in touch with their elected representatives and demand the repeal of qualified immunity.
