Free Course on Use of Deadly Force by Police in the U.S.

Police violence is a human rights crisis. We must step up to protect our communities across the U.S. against excessive use of force.  In order to promote action against police violence in the United States, Amnesty International USA has developed a FREE micro-learning course on the use of deadly force by police in the U.S.  By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Define the Use of Force and articulate under which circumstances authorities are allowed to use it
  • Understand how racist and discriminatory ideology has shaped the history of policing in the USA
  • Outline how U.S. police use excessive force and describe how it threatens human rights
  • Take action by organizing and mobilizing your community to support systemic reform of USA policing to end racism and stop human rights violations
