On Jan. 24 at 24th and Mission Sts., the Mission community witnessed the brutal beating of an 18-year-old African American CCSF student, Kevin Clark, by SFPD.

The incident was videotaped by passersby. It is extremely hard to watch, but we ask that you witness it, send to your contacts and help us get the word out for this emergency protest rally:

The gentrification of the Mission district is pushing out the working-class communities of color, and the police are increasing their harassment and brutality against the people. Join us for a rally at 24th & Mission where we will march through the community and have a press conference in front of the 17th and Valencia St. police station to say: “We will not tolerate violence against our youth and community!”

JOIN COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ORGANIZATIONS STANDING UP AGAINST RACIST POLICE VIOLENCE!
