Eric Garner... Mike Brown... Sandra Bland... Tamir Rice... Freddie Gray...

One after another — and so many others, precious Black and Brown lives — victims of police murder. We think of their faces, and furiously ache for justice. Over 1000 people a year killed by police — yet since 2005, less than 60 indictments, less than 25 convictions!

What must be done to stop this?  Which side are you on?  Come hear these incredible speakers on these most burning questions.

After a lot of obstruction and red-tape, CU administration has finally opened up a space for CU/Barnard students to hear from these incredible speakers on Wed night, Oct 7.

Because this approval came at the last minute, you need to help spread the word!
