Dan Siegel speaking out against the injustices surrounding Alan Blueford’s murder by OPD officer Miguel Masso.
The Alan Blueford Center For Justice endorses Dan Siegel for Oakland for the next Oakland Mayor because he has walked his talk for his entire life which led him to be one of the Blueford family’s lawyers standing up to the injustice & corruption in Oakland City Hall who is under the leadership of Oakland Mayor Jean Quan. When the Oakland City Council & OPD were actively covering up the outright lies told by [former] OPD officer Miguel Masso & perpetuated by [then] OPD chief Howard Jordan about the details of Alan Blueford’s murder, Dan was leading the fight for Justice 4 Alan Blueford & to stop racial profiling & to end police terror.
“Growing up in a working-class Jewish household in New York City, my parents taught me at a young age that Jews could not get jobs at big banks or the power company. But my father was quick to point out that no matter how bad we had it, “Negroes had it worse.”
That was the beginning of my awareness that the color of my skin would open doors for me which were forever sealed shut for other Americans because of the color of their skin. It became my mission to stand alongside those excluded from the American dream and help knock down those doors of injustice.” ~ Dan Siegel

The Alan Blueford Center For Justice stands with The People against Urban Shield & the increased militarization of OPD & PD’s across the nation & globe from #Oakland2Ferguson2NYC2Palestine.
These are a few photos to document the community uniting to stand against police terror resulting from the over-militarization of the police…as well as racial profiling & economic inequalities, but the Urban Shield conference that comes to Oakland every year is about militarizing the police.

Terrorists–which in this case are the police–attempt to divide & conquer by purposefully instilling a sense of fear & hopelessness into a population or community for a political agenda. Unity in the community is the answer to this terror.
On Saturday May 3, 2014 the Blueford family invited the community to join them in a walk around Lake Merritt to celebrate their son’s, brother’s, cousin’s, uncle’s, nephew’s life on the 2 year anniversary of his death. Alan Blueford died b/c a violent, racist, out of control OPD officer murdered him. The walk was a message that Alan’s life matters, all lives matter, including black ones, brown ones, poor ones, mentally ill ones….all lives matter, and we united as a community on May 3, 2014 to send this message in true Oakland fashion….this video of Kev Choice is the 1st of many to come from The Alan Blueford Center For Justice documenting all that happened on this amazing day in history, as we celebrated Alan’s life, we also united as a community against police terror.
