The LAPD and other police departments around the US are calling Tuesday night “A Night Out Against Crime.” They basically want communities motivated by fear to rally around law enforcement.
Our Night Out for Safety and Liberation is about hope and change, not fear. We invite YOU to be part of an open conversation on 40 years of deliberate disinvestment in low-income communities of color and why we need to demand deep structural change in order to enjoy real safety.
#BlackLivesMatter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors will give brief framing remarks; after that this will be your meeting: everyone’s voice will be heard as we struggle together toward a common demand.
Presented by Justice Not Jails and the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. Co-sponsored by ACLU, AME Ministerial Alliance, Drug Policy Alliance, Fair Chance Project, LA No More Jails, LA Progressive, LA Regional Reentry Partnership, Progressive Christians Uniting, and Youth Justice Coalition.
