In light of the rampant police violence against black people in the United States, SASV will be hosting a rally and march October 10th. Join us as we come together fight for change and the end to this brutality. Indy10 Black Lives Matter, Andrea M. Sterling, Yassmin Fashir, Angaza Iman Bahar, and Stanley Njuguna, along with a few others, will be joining us to speak on racialized police violence and institutional racism before we take to the streets.
