March for Racial Justice
October 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“The growing movement against racist policing tactics and police killings has transformed the U.S. political terrain and brought much needed attention to police brutality that is endemic in the U.S. At the heart of this movement is a rallying cry for justice for the victims of this violent system that disproportionately targets Black, Brown and Indigenous peoples.
Case after case, local and federal governments, the courts, police districts, and district attorneys have failed to deliver justice. Moreover, we have witnessed a so-called “Blue Lives Matter” police backlash that aims to reinforce racist policing practices and worsen police accountability to our communities. This year alone, thirty-two “Blue Lives Matter” Bills have been proposed in fourteen states across the country, even though police already enjoy a protected class status. Even the few and recent gains that have been won are being rolled back by the Department of Justice under the leadership of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
These rollbacks are occurring while white supremacists, Nazis, and the so-called “alt-right” are openly marching, recruiting members, and terrorizing people of color, Muslim and Jewish communities.”
