On October 22, 2016 we will remember all of the Stolen Lives lost in Minnesota at the hands of law enforcement in a special ceremony.
We need each of you to volunteer to make a sign that represents a stolen life and carry it at this event.
We especially want to raise awareness of some of the lesser-known victims of police violence.
We ask you to LOOK THROUGH THE LIST OF MN STOLEN LIVES atcuapb.org/stolen_lives and COMPLETE THE FORM to indicate who you would like to represent. We will assign names on first come first serve basis so if you have a special person you want to make a sign for sign up NOW. We will contact you to confirm your assigned stolen life. You will make a sign for the person you represent and bring it with you to be for the ceremony on October 22.
Stolen Lives are people who lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement. In Minnesota, there have been 240 Stolen Lives since 2000. These people are missed by their families and friends and their deaths have left a hole in the fabric of our community. The nature of the INjustice system virtually ensures that the cops who have killed these people will face no consequences and the families left behind will rarely see any measure of justice. In the history of the state of Minnesota, not one single cop has ever faced prosecution for killing a member of the community.
Speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves.
Demand justice for the far too many MN Stolen Lives and demand consequences for killer cops!
