Join Angela Davis and family members of victims of police brutality from Oakland, the Bay Area, Anaheim and New York City. We are suffering an epidemic of racist police murders across the country. Come find out how families are standing up to demand justic for their loved ones and what you can to do help end what Michelle Alexander has called "the New Jim Crow."

This event coincides with what would have been Alan Blueford's 19th birthday. Alan, an African-American student, was murdered by OPD officer Miguel Masso just weeks before he was set to graduate from Skyline High School.

Featured Speakers Include:

Angela Davis, keynote. Jeralynn & Adam Blueford, parents of Alan Blueford. Constance & Frank Graham, parents of Ramarley Graham murdered by NYPD. Damien Ramirez, friend of Michael Nida murdered by police in Downey, CA near Los Angeles.
