    THANK YOU to the LGBTQ+ ad hoc committee for their 2021 work, especially creating a transgender/gender diverse policy.
    Because of the historic and persistent discrimination and harassment the LGBTQ+ community faces from law enforcement, there is more work to do.
    I urge the Sacramento Police Department to adopt the transgender/gender diverse policy that the ad hoc committee put together in 2021.
    I also urge you to create another LGBTQ+ ad hoc in the 2022 year, and to make this a permanent body to inform police policy for these communities.
    We would like this ad hoc committee to focus on issues including police and law enforcement interactions with:
    - Trans/gender non-conforming individuals
    - LGBTQ+ persons of color
    - Sex workers
    - Individuals living with HIV
