Greetings friends! Here’s what we’ve been up to:
On Sunday (11/20), LA CAN honored the Trans Day of Remembrance in Skid Row. The Coalition supported the event alongside the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI). The event featured food, music, and an incredible panel of speakers comprised of trans and non-binary local organizers.
On Tuesday (11/22) we continued protesting the racist business as usual taking place at city council. City officials tried again to stop us from entering council chambers by saying the room was at capacity. This was the room at the time of that announcement:
Before we were kicked out of council chambers for stopping the meeting police provided a document by the city attorney’s office denying entry to Stop LAPD Spying organizer, Hamid Khan.
That evening we had our Data Driven Policing monthly community meeting. During this meeting we unveiled our Community Archive. Dillon Song, an artist and community organizer who has been coordinating the development of our archive, walked attendees through some of its features. We then solicited input some of the working groups that had been reviewing the archiving site.
For the second half of our community meeting, Tiff walked us through the content of LAPD’s new budget proposal .
To plug in with any of the work groups listed above, or for more information about the Stop
LAPD Spying Coalition, email us at [email protected].
