Families United 4 Justice Network Gathering

Families United 4 Justice is a growing frontline collective of families affected by police violence. Our network gathering is a call to all families affected by police violence and their trusted supporters to assemble, share skills, network and create a tangible and collective vision of justice and reparations. Families and supporters will participate in activities guided by a variety of activists, family advocates and veteran family member activists. We will cover themes such as strategizing for collective justice, organizing and archiving content of our individual narratives and cases, running effective social media campaigns, supporting other families in need, sourcing support from existing community structures, and integrating sustainable self-care routines. Participants will walk away with a larger network of families and supporters, concrete next steps for their individual situations and collective vision, constructive organizing toolkits and a deeper analysis of the anti-police brutality movement. This network gathering is open to individuals who have been directly impacted by police violence and their trusted supporters. Please submit an application here.

Coordinators of this network gathering are Vanissa W. Chan, Cynthia Howell, Allen Kwabena Frimpong, Jasmine Graves and Cephus "Uncle Bobby" Johnson.
