Oct 22 – Three Different Opportunities to Advocate for Police Accountability

Reposted from Showing Up for Racial Justice


Monday October 22nd is the National Day of Actions to Stop Police Brutality, and there are multiple events and actions planned. Please pick at least one to advocate for real oversight and real justice.

Press Conference at the “Hall of Justice”, 330 W. Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101 at 9am called by Families and Survivors of police brutality, with Allies committed to Real Community Oversight of Police.

Families of victims of police violence and community support groups are gathering outside the San Diego “Hall of Justice” to petition our government to redress the wrongs inflicted on too many.

No one is above the law. We come to demand justice for Raul Rivera, Alfred Olango, Earl McNeil, Victor Ortega, Sergio Weick, Jonathon Coronel, Frederick Jefferson, and hundreds of other dead or brutalized at the hands of San Diego law enforcement.

We demand an end to the District Attorney’s relentless refusal to properly investigate civilian murders and injuries inflicted by local law enforcement.

We challenge San Diego City Council members to stop sabotaging community oversight of public servants and to sincerely work with residents to create a Commission on Police Practices that is independent, transparent & empowered to counter police brutality.

Teach-in at San Diego City College, 1313 Park Boulevard 12-4
As part of the Racial Justice Coalition, we invite you to join us as we host a teach in honor of stolen lives as we fight to abolish police brutality in communities of color. We will have several speakers who will be educating us on how to get involved and updates on local cases such as Earl McNeil.

October 23 Program

Our speaker this month will be Kate Yavenditti of Women Occupy San Diego and the National Lawyers Guild.  She will be speaking about their proposed Charter Amendment that will change the current Community Review Board on Police Practices, which reviews investigations of police misconduct complaints that are done by SDPD, to an independent Commission on Police Practices, that does an independent investigation.

Women Occupy San Diego is an independent organization of San Diego County women dedicated to creating an equitable economic system and restoring government for and by the people rather than for corporations and the wealthy. Kate is a practicing attorney and activist.

We also will briefly be discussing ballot measures and we will hold our election for 2019 officers.kate1

Vote NO on Associate Justice Carol Corrigan!

Clairemont Democrats,

On your November ballot, there will be retention elections for two Associate Justices of the California Supreme Court. One of those Associate Justices is Carol Corrigan.

She is a Schwarzenegger appointee from 2005. Back in 2008, the state of California successfully overturned a marriage ban for same-sex couples. Associate Justice Carol Corrigan was one of three judges who dissented. Then, Justice Corrigan ruled in favor of sustaining Prop 8 as the law of the land in the historic Strauss v. Horton case that deemed it unconstitutional. If she is retained, she will be able to serve another 12-year term on the California Supreme Court — that means she won’t be back in front of voters until 2030!

We are proud to stand with our friends at the San Diego Democrats for Equality in asking voters to vote NO on Carol Corrigan.

Please make sure that you are up-to-date with your voter registration. If you have moved since the last election, or need to change or update other information, you may do so online: registertovote.ca.gov

Also, before you vote — check out our Clairemont Democratic Club endorsement page for our recommendations for the upcoming General Election on November 6th: clairemontdems.org/endorsements
