An appropriate time to look back at the Supreme Court decision in Dred Scott; the court decreed that he had "no rights which the white man was bound to respect." britannica.com/event/Dred-Sco…

Reminder: You have the right to record police actions as long as you’re not interfering or breaking any other laws. If a cop tells you to stop filming, remind them that it is your right.

We’re seeing in real time why abolition is for everybody. Cuz what and who can be criminalized can easily shift—and who is expected to be part of the process of criminalizing others can too—and we need as many people as possible to resist and fight back.

DC Mayor wants to increase the police budget by $30mil, but why? 2021 data found that “police spend 55–60% of their time responding to ‘non-criminal’ calls.” We should be investing in medical and social services better suited to handle these situations. medium.com/seventhirty-dc…
‘Pregnancy is a private and personal decision and should not require the permission of any politician.’  In 2019, poet Amanda Gorman took a stand against abortion bans in the U.S. and her words are just as relevant today.

The current attack on abortion rights is a racial justice issue. It’s an attack on all rights. twitter.com/MayaRCummings/…
“For poor and working-class women, a disproportionate number of whom are Black and brown, overturning Roe won’t mean that abortions will end. It will mean that safe and sound abortions in health-care facilities will move further out of reach.” newyorker.com/news/essay/how…

‘When the penalty for rape is less than the penalty for abortion after the rape, you know this isn’t about caring for women … [but] about controlling them.’ In 2019, poet @TheAmandaGorman took a stand against abortion bans in the U.S. & her words are just as relevant today.

“Abortion restrictions are racist…They directly impact people of color, Black, brown, Indigenous people ... people who are trying to make ends meet.” And for these people, we will not be silent. This is an attack on all of our rights. bit.ly/3KIjSCg
Let’s be clear for conservative justices this is about abortion AND all rights not explicitly articulated in the Constitution and the amendments. There’s a lot on the line for all of us. #RoeVsWade #SCOTUS twitter.com/shomaristone/s…

This does nothing to help our youth succeed. This is another way to criminalize youth, drawing students into the legal system early and fueling the school-to-prison pipeline. Unsurprisingly, Black students are being ticketed at a disproportionate rate.
Across Illinois, police are ticketing thousands of students a year for in-school violations such as skipping class or littering. Failing to pay their fines (up to $450) could result in adult consequences such as harm to their credit score. propublica.org/article/illino…
Voting is a fundamental right, yet lawmakers across the country — such as FL Gov. DeSantis — are trying to suppress and intimidate voters of color. “Now it’s time for the President to step up,” says @jbrownedianis. @POTUS, we need voter protections NOW! youtu.be/Y4QXZkehbkY
The right to reproductive healthcare is a racial justice issue, and we will support our allies to put pressure on courts, Congress, and other institutions that threaten our freedom. twitter.com/AbortionFunds/…
The push to strike down Roe v Wade will have devastating consequences for all of us, but especially people of color. We deserve the right to make informed and safe decisions about our own bodies and reproductive health. bit.ly/3MKx7Un

“Unfortunately, too often, so-called ‘routine traffic stops’ are deadly for Black and Brown motorists… too often people are stopped because of their race and then when they are stopped they are victims of misconduct, brutality, and sometimes deadly use of force.” —@jbrownedianis
Our Executive Director @jbrownedianis joined @civilrightsorg’s incoming President @mayawiley on MSNBC to discuss the need for more police accountability and transparency following the wrongful murder of Patrick Lloya. Here’s what they had to say: youtu.be/EBDc3j4NH1o

The report about Minneapolis Police Department shows why we are pushing for new models of public safety. Organizations like @BlackVisionsMN are doing this work locally. We should all be free and safe from violence, especially at the hands of police.
MPD cops consistently use overtly racist and misogynistic language, including racial slurs. This goes unchecked. One MPD officer even falsely stated “a man could not be guilty of sexually assaulting a woman if they had children together.”
MPD officers recorded using chemical irritants in 10.7% of cases in which a Black individual “tensed” (tensed their body or pulled away).
MPD “routinely arrests and cites people of color for random, subjective reasons.” These charges allow for racist practices.
Traffic policing is discretionary and is often when cops escalate violence against Black people. People of color are more likely to be stopped by MPD when their race is visible.
While MPD claims there are factors other than race, this report proves race is ALMOST ALWAYS a motivating factor for officer behavior. People of color comprise approximately 42% of Minneapolis, yet comprise 93% of all MPD officer-involved deaths.
MPD officers use covert or fake social media accounts to surveil Black people, Black organizations, elected officials and police critics.
Police function to control and target Black communities and other communities of color. This report released last week on Minneapolis Police Dept proves that again. Here are key findings⬇️ mn.gov/mdhr/assets/In…
Time & again, DOJ and states investigate police depts (STL, Baltimore, LA, etc) and find systemwide racism against Black and Brown communities. Minneapolis, where George Floyd was murdered, is the latest. It’s more than bad apples🧵
Another useless investigation can’t fix this. More trainings can’t fix this. Bodycams can’t fix this. Hiring more Black cops can’t fix this. And Jeri CERTAINLY can’t fix this. That’s because Phx PD isn’t broken. It’s working just as it was designed to work. #PhxCopCoverUp twitter.com/DaveBiscobing1…

To Black and Brown students headed to school today: We see you, we’re here for you; you deserve a safe and inclusive place to learn. #PoliceFreeSchools
It’s 2022 and school districts are still being allowed to put in place policies and procedures that openly criminalized and discriminate against Black students. Let Black students learn in peace. cnn.it/3Lynnw9
“I have to protect my assailant from the violence of the law” is a predicament unique to Black women.

30 years ago in L.A. police officers were not held accountable. Violence is endemic to U.S. policing itself, and today there’s still very little accountability. We have to continue to push for alternatives to public safety that actually keeps us safe. bit.ly/3s2cs65
Our right to free speech is not an excuse to spread hate, racism, and misinformation.
.@GovRonDeSantis & his Republican cronies disenfranchised thousands of black voters by passing an extremely gerrymandered map that eliminates Black districts. We'll fight this attempt at silencing black votes in the courts and the polls in November. 🔗flrising.win/36VHlSq09

Addressing public safety in our schools won’t be solved by rebranding police officers as "community engagement" or "school resource" officers. We know that the only way to stop violence is to make significant public investments in students—not the police. bit.ly/36SkuqT
