Harassment, violence and brutality from police forces across the nation are a huge issue, particularly for communities of color. The Washington Post published a 2014 report containing the numbers: "Black drivers are 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than whites; they are more than twice as likely to be subject to police searches as white drivers; and they are nearly twice as likely to not be given any reason for the traffic stop, period. Relative to other races, blacks are more likely to get pulled over for vehicle defects or record checks."

Tax Day Event

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 10:45am

The Trump/Republican tax law gives huge tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations that will increase the national debt and result in large cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and education.
• Having provided huge tax breaks to corporations and wealthy campaign donors, Republicans are already proposing to pay for them with deep cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and education.
• Instead, we should make sure the rich and corporations pay their fair share of taxes, so we can protect these priorities. And we should invest in our communities to have better schools, fix roads, bridges, and transit systems, make healthcare more affordable, and provide a secure retirement with dignity.

FEMA Stop Displacing Puerto Rican Families!

Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Many of Puerto Rico’s climate refugees have been living in hotels for months while they work to resettle in Central Florida. But the federal housing aid that had been extended to May for most is now being withdrawn with no notice – tossing these families out in the street!

Following Governor Rosselló’s recommendations for eligibility requirements, FEMA determined this week that as many as 1800 families in Florida alone were no longer eligible for Transitional Shelter Assistance (TSA). This unannounced change leaves many families with no housing options as early as this Saturday. We cannot let this happen!
