We are not waiting around for the DOJ to make spaces for our youth to sound off about their expeirences with MPD and what they need from future leadership.
We are interested in providing a space for youth to come out and engage with other youth, community leadership, and organizations about what their needs are and what their experiences have been with MPD. We think it is VERY important that their voices are heard by the DOJ in regarding to the MPD investigiation.
If you’re interested in helping to organize this event for our youth please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from folks and we look forward to hearing from our youth in a SOUNDOFF.
UPCOMING: April 30, 2016 Dontre Day!
The Coalition for Justice will be hosting our next Mass Meeting on THURSDAY, March 3rd at All Peoples Church, 5975 N. 40th Street at 6 p.m. We apologize to anyone that came to the last meeting. It was cancelled right around 6 p.m. due to some unforseen circumstances. We will do our best to send emails and post information on FB to let folks know in the future.
We plan to continue the conversations to our response to what the DOJ is and isn’t doing and preparing for our next action on March 4th with the city’s youth.
We will also continue the conversations and movements around awakening, strategizing, and mobilizing those around us.
We would love to get as many community members, organizations, unions, and churches in this space as possible so please invite your friends, family, and colleagues. Students and children are also welcomed.
The meeting will last approximately two hours (6:00p-8:00p). Please join us, and let your voice be heard.
