Come join the Peaceful Streets Project for a day of discussion and activities focusing on fighting police abuse and corruption, and creating an environment where police are held accountable for their actions! Learn about your rights, institutionalized violence, our rich histories of resistance struggle, and why the present day is the best opportunity we've ever had to create a society free of institutionalized violence. Empower yourself, and then join forces with other like-minded individuals to empower your communities!
Last year we had over 250 people attend. This year we are anticipating 2 to 8 times as many attendees! We are lining up nationally recognized speakers and musicians, and we will have representatives from Peaceful Streets Project, Cop Block and other police accountability organizations and chapters from around the country coming in for this summit and celebration!
***Featuring activist legends, civil rights scholars, training on knowing your rights in police encounters, workshop on using audio/video technology to hold police accountable, and more.
