You're invited to share about your recent interactions with the Oakland Police Department. The Federal Monitor team overseeing OPD will be on hand to hear about your experiences with the police, including what happened, where, when, and whether a complaint was filed. No City officials or police have been invited. There will be no panel discussion. The entire evening will be devoted to hearing testimony from the community!

The Coalition for Police Accountability‘s mission is to place on the November 2016 ballot a measure that has been drafted by Oakland residents to establish a Police Commission with the power to monitor, audit and supervise the Police Department to ensure that OPD practices are Constitutional, do not evidence racial profiling, and that officers who violate policy are held accountable for their misconduct.
It's time to come together for real, sustainable change and police accountability. To learn more about our work, please visit www.coalitionforpoliceaccountability.wordpress.com.
PUEBLO joins the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Californians United for a Responsible Budget, and many other community partners in mobilizing Oaklanders and other Alameda County residents to make their voices heard about how the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) should spend the Proposition 47 savings.
The BSCC is responsible for administering the grant programs for mental health and substance abuse treatment using a portion of the annual Prop. 47 state savings. We demand that the BSCC invest the savings in community-based programs and services.
Join us on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 in Oakland to make your voice heard!
