Friday, 9/23: Court Support in S.F. – Resist the Motion to Dismiss!

Where: Federal Bldg, Floor 17, Court 6 (Judge Breyer), 450 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco
When: 9am for coffee & food, 10 am hearing begins
Instead of moving towards accountability, the City of Berkeley is shamefully shirking responsibility and filing a motion to dismiss the case. Make sure the judge hears our community’s voice saying that Kayla’s life and memory matter! This case needs to be heard.

Where: Meet on the Steps of Old City Hall, 2134 Martin Luther King Blvd., Berkeley

When: 6 pm

Invite your friends and folks on Facebook: HERE

 
The city of Berkeley continues to fail to prioritize people over policing. Now, as ever, we can’t let City government – and our fellow community members – forget Kayla.

Come march with us and help us make some noise in the streets of Berkeley before heading to the City Council meeting.

We remember Kayla and we want accountability. But instead of accountability, the city of Berkeley is filing a motion to dismiss Kayla’s family’s case.  It’s past time for our so-called progressive city government to start valuing and stop dismissing Kayla’s life and the lives of so many people who are Black, Brown, trans, poor, disabled and/or have mental health challenges.

We need community, counselors and mental health care, not killer cops!

Justice 4 Kayla Moore will be tabling at the Ashby Flea Market on 8/21.

We’ll have t-shirts sizes S-3XL, buttons, copies of our demands and other information about the campaign.

The market is run by five community organizations: Berkeley Free Clinic, People’s Park Project, Berkeley Copwatch, Street Spirit and East Bay Food Not Bombs.

Drop by our table at the Ashby Flea Market, 1937 Ashby Avenue, Berkeley on Sunday, August 21 between noon and 4 pm!

Maria Moore at Veterans for Peace Convention 8/14

Maria Moore, sister to Kayla, spoke today on a panel at the Veterans For Peace National Convention: “Standing at the Intersection: Wars Abroad and Struggles for Justice Here At Home.”

Usually when people think of violence and economic and social justice struggles in the United States they do not think about about wars abroad. However, racism, militarization and patriarchal domination are some of the forces responsible for the violence and victimization we see both at home and abroad. Join our panel as we discuss the militarization of the police, military sexual trauma and domestic rape culture and the intersection of the movement for Black lives and the struggle for Palestinian rights.

This panel will be moderated by Michael McPhearson, Executive Director of Veterans For Peace. Panelists include Suhad Khatib, Maria Moore and Monique Salhab.

The event will be held at 10:45 a.m. at Clark Kerr Campus in Berkeley.

You must be registered to attend this event. To register visit: http://www.vfpnationalconvention.org/
