Every day our communities are under attack at the hands of the police, causing pain and suffering within our families. They engage in racist practices, target youth as suspects, violate our dignity, violate women, and deny us any chance at justice. We have entirely lost faith in our law enforcement and denounce the criminal justice system as a corrupt institution that will never respond to our community's needs. We need to build toward a safer community - one based on solidarity instead of terror, mutual aid rather than oppression, and above all else, accountability and justice. To this end we will organize to keep our own streets and families safe, developing new relationships amongst one another - with love, solidarity, and mutual aid.
