Stolen Lives Fundraising Dinner
$20 general admission, $10 for students and unemployed
A fundraising dinner to honor families whose loved ones were killed by police. Funds raised will contribute to the thousands of dollars needed to spread the word and organize people into action for April 14th.
With only a few days left to get out to friends, families and others who can be invited to this special evening to honor the Stolen Lives Families. The quote below, from the letter by a student, captures the essence and power this event can have to people.
“As the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, and other activists, prepare for a national day of action against police brutality on April 14th, we face many challenges, but all of them pale in comparison to the hardship and loss that you have endured, and whenever we find our motivation and resolve waning, it is to you that our thoughts turn -- not only how each of you has lost something precious and irrecoverable, not only how you never saw any justice done for that loss, but how you still struggle against intimidation and repression every day to raise your voice on behalf of the loved ones that were stolen from you.”
Our charge is to celebrating these voices, raise funds and building support for A14. What follows is a basic out line (which can be adjusted) but can give us an overview on what needs to be done to have the most successful dinner/program possible. Please get in touch with me if there are questions or adjustments that need to be made or others who want to volunteer. I will be calling to make sure we are all on the same page and if there more ideas from all of you. Jessie 773-329-5014
