The Puyallup Tribe was intimately affected by police brutality on January 28, when a tribal member, 32-year-old Jackie Salyers, was brutally shot and killed by the Tacoma Police Department.
Following Jackie Salyer’s death, the organization Justice for Jackie was created. Justice for Jackie has been a vocal proponent for stronger police accountability laws and has worked closely with the I-873 campaign.
The Puyallup Tribal Council who endorsed Justice for Jackie at inception has now endorsed I-873 to support policing reforms with an even larger and more powerful voice.
The Puyallup Tribe stands firm in it’s commitment to safer communities for all. They believe that I-873 is a positive step in the right direction for rebuilding community trust with law enforcement. They are joining the I-873 campaign in their commitment to making Washington safer for citizens and law enforcement for generations to come.Print This Post
