Black Lives Matter has come out against a new bill proposed by the New Jersey Assembly that compels schools to provide training to youngsters on how to interact with police and avoid confrontation.

Bill co-sponsor Democrat Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver said, “Look, I’m just trying to save lives.” It passed in a 76-0 vote back in June, HeatStreet reports.

The Black Lives Matter movement has expressed its opposition to the bill, claiming it would just create a scapegoat for police brutality, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. The organization is trying to get New Jersey senators to block the legislation.
