On Monday we had a national call for folks planning solidarity actions with the January 14th National Day of Nonviolent Action to Protest the Murder of Oscar Grant III (& all victims of police brutality) to share their plans. The event will be called 'Praying for Peace, Working for Justice'.
If you didn't hear about the call, please don't be sad at us - we're trying to keep in touch with a lot of organizers locally and nationally, as well as the press. As you can imagine, it's a LOT to deal with. The good thing is, Wednesday is shaping up to be a beautiful, healing event with members from the faith, youth, organizing and small business community coming together with demands for justice.
We have solidarity actions happening in 15 cities, including Atlanta, Boston, LA, and more.
We've already had some small steps towards success, but we won't stop till our demands are met.
