For 10 years, the Idriss Stelley Foundation (ISF), has engaged in politics and protest to stop police violence, and counseled biological and extended families whose loved ones have been disabled or killed by law enforcement. ISF celebrated its anniversary, and its recent victory in the fight against arming San Francisco Police with tasers, at El Rio on Saturday, 04.20.2013, in San Francisco.
