Three opportunities do justice work

Adrienne Little sent these invitations for your consideration.  Adrienne represents CUCC's Social Justice Ministry at Congregations for Social Justice meetings.

1 - Raleigh Police Accountability Events from Ivanna Gonzalez
On June 29 at 6:30pm,  PACT and community members will honor the memory of Akiel Denkins with a balloon release, led by his mother, Rolanda, marking 4 months since his death. Then, after months of letters, presentations, demonstrations, and dialogue with City Council, the Human Relations Commission, and City staff, the City of Raleigh have committed to implementing written consent-to-search forms and regular reviews of police officer stop-and-search data broken down by race!

Come out to a community briefing to hear details of our community's victory from PACT leaders, a workshop on our rights with these changes from legal experts, and a discussion of how we'll keep working toward a Raleigh where police are accountable to the community!    June 30th, 6:30pm, Safety Club at 513 Branch St.

Then come out to the Municipal Building on  July 5th at 6:00pm to Speak Out and show that we will not rest until the police are no longer policing themselves!   Spanish interpretation will be available on June 30th and July 5th!

To get up-to-the-minute updates, join our rapid response text message system by texting JUSTICE to 864237.
