NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!
A Community Townhall on Police Violence
Since the verdict was announced in the Oscar Grant murder trial three weeks ago, there has been at least one more death at the hands of police in Oakland. From the newly imposed gang injunctions to the continued siege by ICE officials in immigrant communities, police repression is becoming increasingly organized.
What have we learned from the Oscar Grant case and what strategies are people using to reinvigorate a movement to end police brutality?
Hear from the family of Oscar Grant, former Chairman of the Black Panther Party Bobby Seale and community organizers as we talk about concrete next steps in creating an Oakland where communities of color are truly safe.
WHEN: Thursday, August 12th 6-8pm
WHERE: EastSide Cultural Center 2277 International Blvd, Oakland 94606
Co-sponsored by Plan For a Safer Oakland, All of Us or None and Youth Together
