The Rapid Response Network responds to urgent human rights alerts from Colombia, Central America and Southern Mexico. As a result, human rights crimes are brought to light, perpetrators brought to justice, and lives spared. Our voices do make a difference!
Citizens for a Safer Cleveland is a diverse coalition of concerned organizations, activists, and individuals — with the leadership of families who have lost a loved one to police violence — who are coming together to demand real justice and accountability for our families (safercle.org). After our coalition successfully collected well over the 6,000 signatures required, this initiative will be on the ballot in November 2021 for City of Cleveland voters. While Black and Brown voters know how crucial police accountability is, too often white voters can block progress. At the same time, poor and working-class white neighborhoods are also over-policed, and there is a real chance to build cross-racial solidarity. So at SURJ NEO, we are committed to organizing this fall in Cleveland's majority white neighborhoods to make sure that the initiative passes with broad support. These teams will power that organizing work, and we hope you'll join us!
