About The Event
Our communities are fed a steady diet of propaganda showcasing the police as the only solution to crime and violence in our communities. While DC Mayor Bowser and MPD Chief Robert Contee criminalize the Black working class victims of poverty created by capitalism, Black, Brown and indigenous working class people are turned into expendable populations. So, What must be done?
The DC Alliance Racist & Political Repression invites all DC area activists and organizers, and the community at-large to this teach-in that will address the implications of: increasing domestic and international policing, Cop City in Atlanta GA, the MPD national recruitment campaign, and Howard University Military Research Center.
Come join your community to get updates on local activities and campaigns and to engage in a movement wide discussion about Community Control Over Police as a viable response to police violence.
