Thanks y’all for joining our #WeKeepUsSafe training on community defense! We created a timeline of how police formed in the US, practiced our de-escalation tactics, and skilled up on cop-watching.
We are a part of national coalition participating in Week of Action Against the School to Prison Pipeline. Find out more here.
Some resources from the training:
- Alternative to Police Calling – Unitarian Universalist
- Community Control – Movement for Black Lives
- How to Cop Watch – The Nation
- Resources on Ending Prisons and Policing – Chain Reaction
- Police Department Retaliate Against Cop Watch Groups – Truth Out
- Know Your Rights during Cop Watch – Assata’s Daughters
- Know Your Rights Handbook for NC Public Schools – LegalAidNC
- Know Your Rights for Cops in Schools – ACLU of NC

What’s next? We are having a BIG celebration on Saturday, December 14th from 7-10pm. It’s our 10th year anniversary and we want to bring together students + alum alike to dance + eat + envision 2020 together. SAVE THE DATE!
