After 17 hours of debate that stretched to 4 a.m. Tuesday, the state Senate passed its police reform bill.

Supporters say the bill takes important steps towards scaling back the power of police and protecting communities of color, while opponents say the process was rushed and sidelined law enforcement voices.

We check in with Rahsaan Hall, director of the Racial Justice Program for the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts and a longtime advocate for police reform in Massachusetts, about what's in the final bill and where things go from here.

This segment aired on July 14, 2020.
