In direct response to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police’s Use of Force panel hosted at the Mob Museum back in July, Families United 4 Justice in collaboration with PLAN Action Fund, Mass Liberation Project, Black Lives Matter UNLV, NAACP, and others will be hosting an entire day of public testimonies from the Las Vegas community, on what they have experienced in regards to police abuse and violence, and police homicide.
Community members who are police abuse survivors and police homicide survivors will have an entire day to share their stories, narratives and experiences of what has happened in their interactions with the police.
LVMPD continuously touts their own horn about their reform process and transparency, using public relations strategies to cover up their messy trail of violence and corruption on Communities of Color and working class communities, while not allowing the community to challenge them during their very controlled “public” hearings and panels.
Originally planned for October, we have decided to postpone this event til MLK Jr Day, Jan 21, 2019 (or that weekend) so that we can prepare the best possible event.
In the meantime, if you have been directly impacted by police abuse or homicide and would like to testify at this hearing, or would like more information about this event please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
