Announcement of Conference on Community Control Over the Police, and collecting submissions for next issue of Amiri Baraka’s newspaper “Unity & Struggle,” with similar theme.
August 11, 2015 marks 1 year since the LAPD murdered Ezell Ford in South Central. August 11 also is the 50 year anniversary of the Watts Rebellion against LAPD terrorism.
To commemorate this legacy of struggle, I am working with the South Central Neighborhood Council in hosting a Conference on Community Control Over the Police, Saturday and Sunday, August 8 and 9, at Santee High School.
We are calling for broad support and participation in convening this event. Please send confirmation asap of your organization’s commitment to organize, mobilize and carry out what appears to be a nationally vital organizing conference geared toward democratic solutions to historic police unaccountability.
Please refer to Facebook/CoalitionforCommunityControlOverthePolice for some of the recent history in Los Angeles.
We look forward to your involvement. The South Central Neighborhood Council board is democratically elected from the community. As part of the Neighborhood Council system under the L.A. City’s Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, we have funds to provide materials and refreshments to the event, but are limited from paying stipends or travel and board.
We are also assembling the next issue of Amiri Baraka’s newspaper, “Unity & Struggle.” Please consider sending content on your community’s struggle for solutions to police brutality, and other art, poetry, analysis, and reports.
In Unity & Struggle,
Jubilee Shine
