On Friday, May 8 at 8 PM Copwatch will be having another movie night. We'll be showing the documentary "Every Mother's Son" at 8 PM at the Grassroots House.

Here's a description of the film:

"EVERY MOTHER'S SON is a portrait of three women who have paid the ultimate price for the aggressive, "zero tolerance" policing practices that swept through American cities during the 1990's - each lost an unarmed child at the hands of the law. Over the course of seven years Tami Gold and Kelly Anderson followed Iris Baez, Kadiatou Diallo and Doris Busch Boskey as they negotiated the difficult journey from individual trauma to collective action. Dealing with the repercussions of their children's deaths upon their lives, they come together and learn how to organize within their communities and speak out about the need to rethink and reform policing."

They'll be popcorn, drinks, and other snacks and we'll be discussing the lessons for the Oscar Grant movement to draw from these earlier responses to police murder.

Come on out!!
