Join us at a press conference and solidarity action against both ICE and law enforcement brutality in Sacramento, across our country, and at our militarized borders. The Decolonization Project will hold danza and prayer for those held behind bars in detention centers and prisons. We will lift our voices to call for an end to state violence. In our solemn acknowledgement of the gravity of this task, we will also come together to build community and find joy in our diversity.
In cities across the country, the people are rising up to say NO MORE to state violence against our immigrant communities and communities of color. It is time to dismantle the racist structures that allow black people to be killed with impunity by law enforcement. Whether by deportation, an officer's bullet, or prison cages, black and brown families are too often being torn apart in this country, including here in Northern California.
It's not enough to simply say, "Abolish ICE." We must push for the abolition of all forms of police, prisons, restrictive borders, and systems of supremacy. It is time to define and begin building the world we want. This struggle is urgent, it cannot wait, and we call upon all individuals and organizations to rise with us!
