FAMILIES FROM ALL ACROSS CALIFORNIA WILL CONVENE ON THE CALIFORNIA STATE CAPITAL ON OCTOBER 22ND FOR THE NATIONAL DAY AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY. THE FAMILIES WITH THE SUPPORT OF THEIR COMMUNITIES WILL LOBBY THEIR LAWMAKERS OFFICES TO DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR POLICE MURDERS AND BRUTALITY AND SEEKING A NEW DAY IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.
You can join in this event by buying bus tickets for yourself/others to get on the bus from Oakland to Sacramento–the bus leaves Oscar Grant Plaza at 14th & Broadway at 8am. The bus ticket price is approx $40/seat, however the minimum ticket price is being set at $10/seat and folks are encouraged to pay as much as they can afford so that many buses are a reality. If the $10 ticket price is an obstacle, please contact The Alan Blueford Center for Justice at 510-250-9308 (landline). The point of the ticket sales is not to exclude anyone, it is to account for how many folks are serious about reserving a seat to get on the bus to join the coordinated struggle against police brutality.
