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.

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!
