From November 11 to November 17, Million Hoodies Movement for Justice will kick off our 2nd annual week-long national conversation to reimagine community safety with the #WeKeepUsSafe National Week of Action. The #WeKeepUsSafe Week of Action is a political intervention that encourages grassroots innovation to demand investments in humanity and our planet, safety beyond policing, real community control, worker rights, community defense, and divestment from militarization and other programs that oppress our people.
We are coming together at this critical moment to ensure that our stories are integrated into a governing agenda post-election and the representation of communities impacted by criminalization and systemic violence are included in policy responses for safety and justice. During the week, Million Hoodies chapters and our partners will host local events, community forums, and direct actions to make entire campuses, cities, towns, and communities safe by building Freedom Cities. #FreedomCities is a movement that makes the case for grassroots organizations to be centers of innovation to build successful models of community safety.
We are looking for partnership support through promotion, creating art/video, hosting events in local communities & campuses, and action development.
