Tomorrow, October 22, is the National Day to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. Since 1996, people have been mobilizing and uniting as one voice to fight and expose police brutality.

Increased documentation by “citizen journalists” has exposed the reality of police brutality around the country. People have spoken up against this brutality through smartphones and social media networks in ways not seen before. This has been an ongoing thing that is just being exposed to the masses.

Police brutality “will not stop unless and until millions of people, of all nationalities, stand up and say NO MORE, in unmistakable terms. The history of this and every other country shows that without struggle, there can be no positive change; but with struggle this kind of change becomes possible.”[1]

    I remember seeing signs about this all over the media center. Looks very interesting, I’m excited to see how it develops on our campuses.
