2018 National Week of Action
A week of action to reimagine safety and justice for our communities
Since Trump's election, we have witnessed ongoing attacks on our humanity, targeting the country's most vulnerable communities--immigrants, women, the poor, queer and trans people, Muslims, and Black people. Around the country, states are consolidating power by attacking public education, increasing police budgets and ICE enforcement, while the federal government repeals policies that have historically provided mobility and protection for communities of color.
From November 11 to November 17, Million Hoodies Movement for Justice and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute will kick off our annual week-long national conversation to reimagine community safety with the #WeKeepUsSafe National Week of Action. The We Keep Us Safe Week of Action is a political intervention that encourages grassroots innovation to demand investments in humanity and our planet, safety beyond policing, real community control, worker rights, community defense, and divestment from militarization and other programs that oppress our people.
