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.

THIS YEAR THEY ARE BRINGING 1500 LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS FROM ALL OVER CALIFORNIA, TO SACRAMENTO!

From September 17th to 20th, police from across the state will be at the Sacramento Convention Center (1400 J Street, Sacramento 95814), where they are having an expo, trainings, and a BBQ competition.

On September 18th, we will show up and let them know, not In Our Streets!

- SEPTEMBER 18TH WILL BE THE SIX MONTH ANNIVERSARY FOR THE MURDER OF #STEPHONCLARK

- PEOPLE ARE CONTINUING TO DIE AT THE HANDS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY

- There have been no answers from DA's across this state with respects to holding cops accountable for excessive force and murder.

- We will be disrupting the norm of a policing culture which lacks accountability and transparency.

- Law enforcement DOESN'T need continued training in TERRORIST and MILITARISTIC tactics!
