Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey, Megan Thee Stallion, Shawn Mendes and Rihanna are among the hundreds of celebrity signatories of an open letter from the music, entertainment and sport industries supporting police reform legislation in California. The statement, spearheaded by the American Association of Independent Music, urges the governor and state legislature to approve two bills addressing police accountability.

Among the other musicians putting their names to the letter are ASAP Ferg, Young the Giant, the Jonas Brothers, Meek Mill, Anderson .Paak, Death Cab for Cutie, Migos, Kehlani, Miguel, Ludwig Goransson, Mary J. Blige, Summer Walker, Richie Sambora, Journey, deadmau5, Aloe Blacc and Steven Tyler & Joe Perry.

Actors Sarah Paulson, Robert DeNiro, Lucy Hale, Zooey Deschanel, Cynthia Erivo, Josh Gad, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, Chris Sullivan, Alyssa Milano and Debra Messing were among those signing. Companies and organizations signing on included the three top label groups — Warner Music Group, Universal Music Group and Sony Music Group — along with ASCAP, BMI, the Screen Actors Guild and the Actors’ Equity Association.

The first bill, SB 731 (Bradford), would establish a system to revoke a police officer’s certification, upon criminal conviction or serious misconduct, and update liability rules under California’s Bane Act; the latter, SB 776 (Skinner), would increase the transparency and reporting on the use of force incidents involving officers. Both bills will make their way through the state legislature and may be voted upon on the floor of the assembly as soon as next week.

“While the killing of George Floyd inspired sustained outrage, protests, and reporting, the people of California have long understood the need to properly address the actions and accountability of police,” the letter reads. “For too long, courts have undermined the intent of the State’s laws, allowing bad police officers to violate the rights of those they are meant to protect. In addition, a lack of transparency and a deficient recordation system has shielded officers who abuse their authority and tarnish the integrity of California’s law enforcement. We can fix this.”
