**ATTENTION** National Hoodie Day is THIS MONDAY, JUNE 10TH! June 10th marks the day that George Zimmerman is to face trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin and exactly one month since the murder of Terrance Franklin by the Minneapolis Police Department. It took thousands in the streets to get Zimmerman charged in the first place– without continued resistance, there will not be justice in this case, or any of the cases where there is a target painted firmly on the backs of Black and Latino youth. This event is not asking for more people to be arrested and locked up, but to end: racism and all forms of oppression, the targeting of youth, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and the New Jim Crow! And, for community empowerment, self determination, and transformative justice!
This event or Save the Kids is not affiliated with the RCP. We want to note that we are not “All Trayvon Martin,” because certain people in society will not be targeted because of one’s race, while others will. Most youth incarcerated in the U.S. are youth of color. To end youth of color being locked up and targeted we must challenge racism.
