Our comrades with Community Movements Builders are developing a strategy for fighting police harassment and resolving issues in the community without involving the police. They’re training young people on doing neighborhood patrols in southwest Atlanta.
This is exactly what’s needed! Copwatch patrols have been an important tool in resisting gentrification and police in Edgewood, and we’re excited to see this effort in Pittsburgh, another neighborhood under threat from developers and abusive police.
CMB needs to raise funds to establish these patrols as a sustainable community-controlled project. Along with Copwatch of East Atlanta, we’re matching donations up to $3,500. Please donate!
