Building Power Against Systemic State Violence in California
Justice Teams Network to Focus on Rapid Response Work and Police Accountability Laws
Justice Teams Network launched on May 2 to build power against systemic State Violence in all its forms. The Network is a statewide coalition of rapid response organizations across the state of California that will mobilize communities to respond radically to state violence. The Network will focus heavily on legislation as well as a public information campaign around the Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights, the single largest obstacle to police accountability.

In California, police consistently shoot over 100 people every year. Last year in the United States, nearly 1,200 people were killed by police officers. These deaths destroy families and rip apart communities while law enforcement responsible for even the most egregious cases are rarely, if ever, held accountable.

The Network is grounded in the rapid response model developed in the Bay Area by the Anti Police Terror-Project (APTP) project, and a model for healing justice developed by Dignity and Power Now in LA. The network launch signals the adoption of these models by activists and organizations across the State.
