It's Time to Fight Back
Over the past five years, police brutality has become a consistent theme in nightly news and social media feeds. We have all witnessed the pain and trauma inflicted on bodies of color by law enforcement officers, at the same time we have seen our people rise up to resist this injustice from Ferguson, Mo to Milwaukee, WI and around the world. The disruptions are becoming more frequent. The actions are becoming bolder. And the people are willing to take to the streets no matter the race, gender, sex or age bracket to ensure our collectives voices are being heard
This weekend aims to not only mobilize but to reenergize and organize our bases in ways that can not only disrupt the criminal justice system but transform. Our vision for this weekend is to equip every family with the help that they need to carry on with their fight, every organizations with the tools to build up community of resistance and to connect individuals and activist with other like minded people to to begin the alternatives to this corrupt system of injustice.
