#CaravanForJustice

October 3, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Ella Baker Center, in partnership with the ACLU of California, is organizing a #CaravanForJustice from October 3-10 that will travel throughout the state to mobilize communities against law enforcement violence and spread awareness about the Mobile Justice CA app.

The caravan will:
-Educate community members about the Mobile Justice CA app
-Gain support for the Racial and Identity Profiling Act of 2015 (AB 953)
-Highlight the role of regional Justice Teams for Truth and Reinvestment
-Engage people in a global conversation about police violence

Every stop will be a mix of civic engagement and education. Justice Teams will host panels featuring organizers and community members who are directly impacted by police violence, and there will additionally be marches, rallies, town halls, and teach ins.

At every stop, we will host an educational segment on the Mobile Justice CA app, a tool that community members can use to record law enforcement abuses.

To contribute to a global conversation on police violence, family members of those killed by police in the United Kingdom will travel on the #CaravanForJustice as well.

Stops at:
Oakland (October 3)
Sacramento (October 4)
San Joaquin Valley (October 5)
Salinas (October 5)
Fresno (October 6)
Inland Empire (October 7)
Orange County (October 8)
San Diego (October 9)
