Community Conversations: A History of Black Struggle Against Police Control in NYC
For their February Community conversation, The Brotherhood Sister Sol's Liberation Program will be celebrating Black History Month by discussing the history of organizing against police control in black communities. The film and discussion will have a focus on Harlem-based movements from Malcolm X's early organizing work to the recent uprisings against police violence. We will also hear experiences of how key resiliency tactics such as Copwatch have been essential in advancing our demands from the streets to the courts in Black communities throughout New York City. All are welcome. Food will be served at 6pm.

Queens #CopWatch Training
#CopWatch is one step you can take to deter, de-escalate, document and expose police violence. Just this month, charges were dropped against a false accused Sunset Park street vendor after #CopWatch footage contradicted the NYPD's account of the incident. Join the Justice Committee to learn best practice for monitoring and documenting police activity safely and effectively, whether in teams of on your own.
Organized by Justice Committee's Jackson Heights Cop Watch Team
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Location: Immigrant Movement International, 108-59 Roosevelt Ave., Queens, NY 11368
