Last Tuesday’s scheduled elections for the Los Angeles Police Commission were postponed. Steve Soboroff remains Board President for at least two more weeks. Anti-Trump organizers continued to demand answers around the infiltration of their work by LAPD.

HIGHLIGHTED NEED:
Refrigerator – We need a refrigerator or a mini-fridge for our headquarters! We often host meetings, events and stage bus-rides there. We have been relying on coolers to keep our perishable items from spoiling. A standard fridge is preferred, but even a mini-fridge would help a great deal. We’re happy to receive a new or a well-working used fridge.

BLACK AUGUST:
We recognize that the struggle for Black freedom too often comes at a tremendous cost. There are still Black freedom fighters locked in cages. Please remember them, write to them, and donate to the Jericho Movement at https://thejerichomovement.com/donate.
