UPDATE: Oaklin Springs Cemetery has removed all race-based restrictions from their burial contracts in response to our demand. Now we're calling on all institutions to join us in confronting and rooting out systemic white supremacy – here and everywhere.
Join us TODAY 2/27 at 11AM CT / 12PM ET for the premiere of our Black Future Series on Black political impact with @DasheikaRuffin, @crysxcoop, @alanah_ACLU, and @meritlaw.
We’re talking authentic representation, reparations and more!
This is what justice looks like. A community coming together to end a shameful relic of Jim Crow, heal the wounds it inflicted, and bring families back together. #cjreform
A video is circulating showing a @BRPD officer trying to arrest a teen. The family says, the teen, 13, was allegedly mistaken for someone else when the incident occurred.
They say, tonight he’s home, but they want answers from the department on what’s they’re calling excessive.
This incident is another reminder of the urgent need not only for reform, but for a fundamental reimagining of the role of policing. Banning chokeholds did not stop this child from being brutalized, and incremental reform will not end the epidemic of police violence in America.
“Because we poured out love, they gave love back to us.”
Watch our own @Alanah_ACLU interview Ronald Ailsworth and Betty Toussaint Ailsworth about what the Black Panther Party can teach us about the fight for racial justice today. #BlackHistoryMonth
Ready to be on the frontlines of the fight for justice and fairness in Louisiana? Join our volunteer orientation this Thursday 2/25 and learn about how to get involved in our work to defend the civil rights and civil liberties of every Louisianian. RSVP >>
Our story matters. We were proud to collaborate with @AmistadResearch on a digital exhibit celebrating Black Louisianans of every generation who have demanded justice and fought to create a more perfect union for everyone. #BlackHistoryMonth
