Online (FREE)

Register in Zoom: http://bit.ly/PoorMag4-19-21

Based off POOR Magazine’s revolutionary workshops of the same name and collected in print for the first time, this handbook takes readers through the Herstory/His-STORY of Po’Lice Terror of our bodies, lives, children and elders in this stolen land, and then shares the model of the Elephant Council at Homefulness—a poor, Indigenous people/traumatized people’s accountability circle, which includes a redefinition of the silently violent, western white supremacist notion of “security,” and enables us to hold each other through trauma and institute a true definition of interdependent safety.

Host: SF Public Library and POOR Magazine

Vigil and March.

You are welcomed to bring your body, your loved ones, flowers, candles, things that represent your grief, anger and demands for abolition

What happened to Daunte Wright and Roger Allen proves that the criminal legal system can never bring us justice. The trial of Derek Chauvin is ongoing & the police continue to murder, They will always kill because the system of policing is NOT broken. It is functioning as intended.  The time for waiting is long over. We must defund, disband, and abolish the police.
