Bill Combating False and Racially Motivated 911 Calls Moves Forward

Assemblymember Jones-Sawyer’s Public Safety Bill Is First of Its Kind State Policy to Deal with Rise in Discriminatory 911 Calls and False Police Reports

LOS ANGELES, California – (August 20, 2020) – Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer’s (D-Huntington Park) legislation dealing with the growing misuse of the 911 emergency system to attack people of color has passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee on a 7-0 vote. AB 1775 increases the criminal penalties imposed when a person knowingly makes a false 911 call for the purpose of harassing another. The strongest penalties are imposed when a false 911 call is based on a person’s race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ancestry, place of origin, or other protected characteristic.

AB 1775 has received broad support from 911 dispatch operators, social workers, police unions and sheriffs, as well as cities and municipalities representing diverse communities. The bill has no registered opposition.

911 Hate Crime Bill Moves Forward

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The California Legislature Friday will begin debating a bill which would make it against the law to make a false 911 call based on a person’s ethnic background, gender or sexual orientation.

Assemblymember Jones-Sawyer Champions Legislation to Combat Racist 911 Calls and False Police Reports

AB 1775 combines three bills increasing penalties for discriminatory 911 calls

LOS ANGELES, California – (August 6, 2020) – Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-Huntington Park) announced the merger of three bills aimed at ending discriminatory 911 calls. AB 1775 (Jones-Sawyer) will increase the criminal penalties imposed when a person knowingly makes a false 911 call for the purpose of harassing another. The strongest penalties are imposed when a false 911 call is based on a person’s race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ancestry, place of origin, or other protected characteristic.

The Ralph Civil Rights Act of 1976 provides that all persons have the right to be free from violence or intimidation by threat, based on a person’s perceived or actual race, gender, age, sexual orientation or other protected classes. AB 1775 will classify blatantly false reports as a form of intimidation, allowing the victim of these calls to file a lawsuit against the person who knowingly made the false report.

Open Letter to the Census Bureau

California Complete Count – U.S. Census

Director Katague:

I am writing to express my concerns and disappointment with the Census Bureau’s decision to end the field operation portion of hard-to-count communities by a month sooner than required ending September 30, 2020. It is my understanding that requests to the Trump Administration seeking extensions on reporting deadlines have not been granted and is the rationale behind the decision to end the count early.

This is unacceptable and this letter will serve as my formal complaint on the matter.
