Thursday, SEPTEMBER 13, 5pm 
  BLOW THE WHISTLE
On Police Brutality and Murder, Racial Profiling, and the Pipeline Leading To Mass Incarceration
 
... To the youth and students tired of knowing every time you leave your house you might be harassed by cops...

... to parents who fear that no matter what you tell your kids about surviving an encounter with the cops it won't be enough to keep them safe...

... to Black and Latino people, youngsters or a little older, racially targeted for mass incarceration in the era of the "New Jim Crow"... to all the former prisoners discriminated against even after they've served their sentences and to all the families and loved ones of people ensnared in the criminal "injustice" system....

...to anyone and everyone concerned about the future for young people and concerned about the future of humanity...

BE PART OF LAUNCHING A NATIONWIDE PROJECT ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13: BLOW THE WHISTLE ON POLICE BRUTALITY AND MURDER, ON RACIAL PROFILING, AND THE PIPELINE LEADING TO MASS INCARCERATION! Police murder, brutality and harassment are a fact of life for millions of people all across the U.S., especially young people and Black and Latino people.    
    
In New York, on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, thousands will BLOW THE WHISTLE and organize determined resistance to "Stop and Frisk" - the policy of racial profiling that police enforce all across the country, racial profiling that serves as a pipeline to mass incarceration - the 2.4 million people warehoused in prisons throughout the U.S.

ORGANIZE in your neighborhood; at your school; at your church, your union or political group - with flyers, banners and WHISTLES declaring our determination to BLOW THE WHISTLE on the slow genocide this system is inflicting on the people.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, from New York to California, in cities large and small across the U.S., we will build on the resistance that's developing and BLOW THE WHISTLE on it all.
