No Candlelight Vigil & Walk for Jessica St. Louis

On July 28, 2018, Jessica St. Louis was released from Santa Rita Jail in the middle of the night at 1:25a. Like so many other people released from Santa Rita, she had to walk the 1.9 miles to Dublin BART. She would be found outside, unresponsive and declared dead before the station opened at 5:30a. 

We are demanding an end to late night releases. 

Please join us as we take the long, dark and desolate walk Jessica and so many other women and men take to get home after incarceration. 
Along the way, we will hear the stories of other women who encountered traffickers, were sexually harassed, and braved the cold after release from Santa Rita Jail. 

We will have a number of cars shuttling people from Dublin BART to Santa Rita. Those with disabilities will join our walk via caravan.

Get on the Bus to Sacto! Pass AB 931-Stop Police Use of Force!

Join our mobilization to Sacramento on 8/13 to DEMAND much needed changes to policing in California! 

Our bus will pick folks up from West Oakland BART promptly at 6:15 AM and drop back off there at 5 pm -- all you need to do is GET ON THE BUS TO THE CAPITOL!

We are closer than we have ever been to passing landmark legislation on policing -- to set new standards for when police use deadly force (AB 931). More info: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1o2saotOGC1VdfTpZ1VtxgyQYONjDxCJo/view?usp=sharing 

This an incredible opportunity – but there’s huge resistance. These bills are historic – no effort to raise standards for police deadly force has ever been introduced. We have an incredible coalition supporting these bills, but police unions are fighting these with everything they’ve got. We need active support from our coalition and other allies fighting for justice to get these passed!

Here’s what you and yours can do:

1. JOIN US at the Capitol on 8/13! Our coalition will hold space at the Capitol alongside hundreds of youths who have planned their own action and will be making demands of their legislators. 

Our bus will leave promptly from the West Oakland BART at 6:15am and will leave Sacramento at 3:15pm. We should be back at West Oakland BART by 5pm. 

-if you are getting on the bus to come up to the Capitol, PLEASE REGISTER HERE: https://goo.gl/forms/SU6AqJV6vn9qyuam1 - we need #s to figure out how many buses are needed, and are requesting zip codes so we can let representatives know how many of their constituents have mobilized! 

2. If you aren’t able to show up and show out on the 13th, please ask your members and supporters to call their legislators. Call scripts and call info are linked here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1icHoHj08mJG5dG7G6XKhEuq51I3eC3rF/view?usp=sharing. Each call takes less than 2 minutes -- do it now if you can!

3. Boost #AB931 on social media. Use the social media toolkit linked here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GUH4MetqS4HiI3f2QdPvgmZ67FFVLi6M/view?usp=sharing

4. Forward these requests to organizations working for social justice!

We can pass historic legislation this year to shed light on deadly force and serious misconduct investigations, and reduce deadly force by police. I hope you will join us!

Blood on Santa Rita's Hands!

VIGIL and RALLY for DUJUAN ARMSTRONG and JESSICA ST LOUIS

Meet in the bus loop in front of the jail.
Gather at Santa Rita jail this Friday to call for Justice for Dujuan and Jessica St Louis.

Dujuan was 23 years old when he was killed due to neglect and abuse at Santa Rita jail on June 23, 2018. His family is asking for community to come out in support of Dujuan and please bring signs. 

Jessica St. Louis was released from the Santa Rita jail after 1am on Saturday night, and was found dead at East Dublin BART hours later. There absolutely should be no circumstances under which women are released into the dead of night, when public transit is closed and no programs are open to transition women into support services. Jessica would be alive today were it not for this violent practice that puts girls and women into harm’s way. Throughout the state of California, women are released in such a dangerous way. In Jessica’s memory, we vow to put an end to this inhumane practice. 

You can support Dujuan's family by donating here: paypal.me/JusticeforDujuan 

You can support Jessica’s funeral arrangements and celebration of her life here:

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.

APTP General Meeting -- Abolish ICE!

We will be joined by comrades from the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance (CIYJA). CIYJA is an immigrant youth-led organization that strengthens grassroots organizing efforts to build collective power. They’ve been on the front-lines of the struggle against ICE terrorism of immigrant communities for many years, working directly with families across the state who are fighting deportation and detention. They've also been explicit about creating solidarity with other anti-criminalization movements and about connecting the dots between prisons, mass incarceration, and detention and deportation -- which we know are all part of the same system. 

They will speak to us about how APTP can join CIYJA in the fight to #AbolishICE, and how we can work together to end police terror and mass incarceration in all its forms.

Justice for Sahleem Tindle Rally & March

Justice for Sahleem Tindle Rally & March

  • Superior Court of California, County of Alameda (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Sahleem Tindle family continues to fight for #Justice4Sahleem and demand that #OMalleyChargeMateu with murder. Joseph Mateu is the BART police officer who murdered Sahleem Tindle across from the West Oakland BART station on January 3, 2018. Despite clear video proof that Sahleem was not holding a weapon and was shot in the back, no charges have yet been filed against Mateu. In fact the BART Police Chief is considering Mateu for a promotion.

This is why the family is calling for an 11:30 rally in front of Nancy O'Malley's office at the courthouse on 12th St and Fallon, by Lake Merritt. 

They will then march at 1:30 to 2040 Webster St. where the BART Board meetings are held.

There will be a dedication there at 2:30 to the life and spirit of Sahleem Tindle.

The BART Police Citizen Review Board meeting then starts there at 4:00 pm. In addition to public comment, on the agenda is a discussion of "Effect of Pending Internal Investigations on Promotional Opportunities for BPD Personnel" as part of the BART Chief of Police Carlos Rojas' report for "discussion and action". Also on the agenda are "BPD Administrative Leave Process (Criteria for Returning an Officer to Full Duty Pending Completion of an Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation). For Discussion and Ac
tion." and "Use of Force Policy Training Status. For Discussion and Action." Even this item "BPD Media Communications and Information Policy. For Discussion and Action" is relevant as Chief Rojas publicly praised Officer Mateu for "courage" for his murderous actions.

Healing Justice + Rapid Response Training

What are some ways our communities have resisted violence over generations? What does this say about our ability to heal trauma and build wellness into the fabric of our lives and communities? What practices do you and your communities do to ground, center, and keep resilient? Why is it important to center healing within our movements?

This is a moment to invite our radical imagination, our BIG hearts, and our outrage to build community and make change. As part of the statewide Justice Teams Network Caravan- we will be sharing our Healing Justice approach within our Rapid Response work. Our work centers the healing and regeneration of the families and communities we work with, as well as the healing of the healers and rapid response workers. We will set the context for a Rapid Response training that our partners, The Anti Police-Terror Project will lead. The First Responders Training draws upon over 10 years of experience of investigating incidents of police terror and providing support to impacted families. The training will cover the history, structure, and organizing model of APTP. 

Join Cat Brooks and the DPN Building Resilience team in this very important and timely conversation.

Pack the Police Commission: Demand Accountability!

Pack the Police Commission: Demand Accountability!

From its inception, the Oakland Police Commission has been incredibly problematic. One of the most egregious elements is that it allows the Mayor to directly appoint three people to the commission with no vetting.

NOW - the Commission is dragging its feet to comply with community demands that the Chair of the commission, Thomas Lloyd Smith, who was directly appointed by Libby Schaaf, undergo an investigative process related to inappropriate actions he has taken as the Chair:

  • On March 11, the night of the most recent police shooting in Oakland, Mr. Smith showed complete disregard for the community by getting on the media and parroting the police narrative of that shooting without any investigation having happened. 
  •  Mr. Smith falsely claimed that the meetings needed to move from Wednesday to Thursday’s because that was the only day KTOP could broadcast in an effort to exclude a member of the commission who has been publicly critical of his behavior.
  • There are multiple concerns about the actions of Mr. Smith, both on the dais and behind the scenes. These have been brought to him both from the community in public forum and privately, and as well have been expressed to him by several commissioners- mostly women. He remains unwilling to acknowledge or respond to these concerns.

Not only has his actions demonstrated a necessity for careful scrutiny of the behaviors of commissioners, but before this commission was even formed we knew it was compromised by the placement of Mayoral appointees without a clear transparent process for the skills, and characteristics of who the mayor would send to be on this commission. We knew this before the commission even began, but as a Mayoral appointee, he has simply proven our point.

We continue to maintain that all commissioners should be appointed by the community to represent the community, and should be always evaluated by and held accountable by the community. You cannot replicate the systems of oppression that exist within the police department by hiding facts, being dishonest and avoiding accountability. 

Join APTP to demand an investigative process for Mr. Smith to be accountable for his actions.

We're asking everyone who can to support the family of Sahleem Tindle in their struggle to get justice for Sahleem, who was murdered by BART officer Joseph Mateu on January 3, 2018. BART was forced to release the body cam video of his murder, where it was exposed for all to plainly see that 28 year old Sahleem was shot in the back three times with his hands up and no weapon in sight! We have been with the family to two BART Board meetings and a BART Police Commission Meeting in the past few weeks, where the family and community have pressed hard to get Mateu fired.

The family's demands are to fire, charge and prosecute this murderer! On Tuesday, 3/13, at 10am, we're going to have a talk with DA Nancy O'Malley, who has the power to prosecute him. Mind you, she's never prosecuted a single killer cop, so we have to press hard to make her break that record. Here's the event info for that:

February Monthly General Meeting / Resurrecting the Legacy of Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El Shabazz)

Repurposing the APTP meeting this month for the following Black Solidarity Week Event:
We will gather to remember and celebrate the legacy of Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El Shabazz),who was assassinated on this day in 1965. Due to consistent attacks, misrepresentation and erasure of his work and his critical impact, it is essential to resurrect, protect, and maintain his legacy. This vigil will begin the countdown to our Honoring the Legacy Event to be held on May 19, 2018. This is a Black Solidarity Week Traditions & Ways Event. Sponsored by Black Solidarity Week and the Community Ready Corps.

Monthly APTP meeting is held on every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

The Anti Police-Terror Project is a project of the ONYX ORGANIZING COMMITTEE that in coalition with other organizations, like Idriss Stelley FoundationCommunity READY Corps and Workers World Party - Bay Area, is working to develop a replicable and sustainable model to end police terrorism in this country.

We are a Black-led, multi-racial, multi-generational coalition.
