From Oakland to Chicago: Responses to Police Violence

April 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

LOCATION:
Chicago Temple
77 W Washington Street, 2nd Floor.
Wheelchair accessible.

The People’s Response Team is so excited to bring out members of the Anti Police-Terror Project and their First Responders Team from Oakland, California.

The Anti-Police Terror Project is a project of the Onyx Organizing Committee that in coalition with other organizations like the The Alan Blueford Center For Justice and Healthy hoodz are dedicated to ending state-sanctioned murder and violence perpetuated against Black, Brown and Poor people. They are a Black led, multi-racial, multi-generational coalition. The First Responders Team, a working group of APTP, is committed to supporting families impacted by various forms of police brutality. They document abuses by police throughout the Bay Area, and connect impacted people with resources and offer legal referrals.

The People’s Response Team is a multi-racial, intergenerational group committed to supporting efforts to end police violence in Chicago. We aim to respond, document and investigate fatal police shootings in Chicago, and connect family members and loved ones with emotional, social, and legal support. We do not collaborate with law enforcement. We are in partnership with and take leadership from Justice for Families, a working group of Black Lives Matter – Chicago that provides long-term support for families who’ve lost loved ones to police murder.
