Learn about WPD's systemic racism and demand accountability

Worcester Police Department has refused to even acknowledge its own systemic racism. To ensure that Worcester citizens know the truth Defund WPD is releasing information about 42 lawsuits that have been filed against the WPD in the last decade. More than half of these lawsuits were filed by members of Worcester’s Black, Latinx, Asian, and LGBTQ+ population. These lawsuits incontrovertably demonstrate that the WPD has a problem with systemic racism.

We encourage Worcester residents to learn about these lawsuits by following our #ChangeTheNarrative social media posts and reading our press release that kicks off the #ChangeTheNarrative campaign.

Once informed, we encourage Worcester residents to take action and demand the WPD be held accountable.
