What: An entirely student-organized peaceful protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The objective of this demonstration is to increase public pressure on local city governmental officials to defund APD and reinvest this money into restorative justice programs that will help transform and liberate Black and brown communities. We will center this protest on Black speakers in an effort to amplify Black voices. There will also be a memorial at City Hall for the countless victims of police brutality. Please bring items such as flowers, candles, stuffed animals, and more to pay your respects.We demand an end to the state-sanctioned violence targeting Black and brown people and an end to the for-profit run Prison Industrial Complex that capitalizes off POC.
