Social Justice Organizations Party with Cop Who Broke Elderly Woman's Arm
Santa Cruz Peace Party's Goal to Bring Together Police with Racial Justice Community
The Resource Center for Nonviolence (RCNV), the Santa Cruz Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and Garfield Park Community Church partnered to throw a party with the goal of bringing together the police with the social justice community in Santa Cruz. The party was called the "NAACP Peace Party" and was held at Garfield Park Community Church on August 28.

The church even skipped a worship service that day to set up for the "party." Santa Cruz Police Department Officers and Santa Cruz County Sheriffs were invited. Among the officers that showed up to the party was Santa Cruz Police Lieutenant Christian LeMoss, who broke the arm of a 60-year-old disabled woman when he arrested her on May 9, 2008. He was a Sergeant with the department then.
