APTP

The Anti Police-Terror Project began as a project of the ONYX Organizing Committee. We are a Black-led, multi-racial, intergenerational coalition that seeks to build a replicable and sustainable model to eradicate police terror in communities of color. Founding coalition members include the Black Power Network, Community Ready Corps, Workers World and the Idriss Stelley Foundation. APTP is not a non-profit organization.

VIGIL: SAY HER NAME - NIA WILSON

What: Vigil for Nia Wilson

When: 5:30 - 8:30 pm Monday, July 23

Where: MacArthur BART, Oakland

As Oakland braces itself for the potential invasion of white supremacists into our City today - we should continue to #sayhername Nia Wilson. Nia is the second Black woman brutally murdered in the Bay Area over the last couple of days. We are inviting community to come hold space, light a candle and be together in our collective grief. We also know that we are each others best defense. Community READY Corps will provide on-site self defense training for those who want it. We demand that our City officials respond with immediacy and efficiency and catch the man who killed this young woman. We demand that our City officials take a loud and public stand against white supremacy. Hate Speech is NOT Free Speech. We stand in solidarity with and support of Nia's family. We know who we are as a City. Let's stand together in our love for each other and protection of each other.
