Communities United Against Police BrutalityTM is a Twin-Cities based organization that was created to deal with police brutality on an ongoing basis. We work on the day-to-day abuses as well as taking on the more extreme cases. Our overriding goal is to create a climate of resistance to abuse of authority by police organizations and to empower local people with a structure that can take on police brutality and actually bring it to an end. We provide support for survivors of police brutality and families of victims so they can reclaim their dignity and join the struggle to end police brutality.
TODAY–MN Solidarity Actions: Demand Justice in Ferguson and Beyond
After the August 9 murder of Michael Brown by Ferguson, MO cop Darren Wilson, city leaders were looking for a way to give Wilson a free pass. They did it with a grand jury, an utterly corrupt process controlled by the prosecutor.
The community needs to let it be known that we DO NOT ACCEPT the results of a phony process and that WE DEMAND JUSTICE!
