ANTI-POLICE BRUTALITY FORUM
(Part of Anti-Police Brutality Week)
DATE: Thursday, October 13, 2011
LOCATION: Pasadena City College (Circadian Building CC), 1570 E. Colorado Bl., Pasadena, CA 91106
Police repression and brutality is UNDENIABLY one of the most pressing issues which afflicts our communities. Whether we believe that the police are here to protect our communities or keep them in their place, we cannot ignore that that the people of Los Angeles have experienced unbelievable trauma as direct result of decades worth of police misconduct, mayhem, and murder.
But it is important to note that we are NOT defenseless against state repression. Through knowledge, community, and resistance, we can push back the authorities and assert our right to live in a space that is free from poverty, crime, and the grasp of the prison-industrial complex.
This forum will not only educate us on the complex relationship between racism, economics, and injustice system, but will also offer a safe space for marginalized communities to offer their experiences with police and state repression, including:
– People of Color
– Womyn of Color
– The Queer/Transgender Community
– Dis-Abled Populations
We hope that through this event, we can begin connecting to each other and form communities of resistance.
