JUSTICE FOR OSCAR GRANT: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16TH - 7 TO 9 PM - a memorial movie of Oscar Grant, with Uncle Cephus Bobby Johnson, other members of Oscar's family and Jack Bryson. Come for update: Meserlhe's trial starts October 13th, unless continued again.


Join us October 2nd at 7pm for the opening reception for an exhibition of paintings from three men – Kevin Cooper, James Anderson and Eddie Vargas. Two of them are condemned – on death row; the third has a life sentence – the other death penalty.

These three men use art to express themselves. We hope you will see their work, hear their stories, and take away an understanding of their humanity from viewing it.

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY
