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.

Grateful to have the support of our community as we do the work of reforming our criminal legal system. #CJReform #ThePeoplesDA

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

What a difference a DA can make. Today @RunwithJason waived all objections to new trials for 22 incarcerated people convicted by split juries. Let's keep fighting to reunite families and bring down relics of #JimCrow once and for all.

Albert Woodfox spent 44 years in solitary confinement after being wrongfully convicted of murder. Five years after his release, he's continuing to work for justice and change. #StopSolitary

Prolonged solitary confinement is torture, and yet incarcerated people in Louisiana continue to be subjected to this this inhumane and barbaric practice. It's time to end solitary confinement once and for all.

Quoted @JonahMGilmore

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.
