On Thursday, Kendra Marsh, Chair of the Youth Committee of the Peoples’ Commission to Decriminalize Maryland testified at a meeting of the House of Delegates’ Workgroup to Address Police Reform and Accountability in Maryland, chaired by Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary.

“I believe this is a moment in which we can tear down the power of police departments that have historically oppressed the most vulnerable in society, and instead uplift and provide resources for the communities that have been over policed,” she testified.
