Donate Now to Fund Families to Travel to NYC for #RiseUpOctober to Stop Police Terror
Revolution Books urges you to join with #RiseUpOctober, initiated by Cornel West and Carl Dix. Be part of this historic mobilization to New York City on October 24. Hundreds of people from Chicago will be traveling on buses to be part of this massive protest in the streets of NYC to STOP POLICE TERROR! Now is the time to show "Which Side Are You On?" as the actions on October 22, 23, and 24 aim to change the whole tenor and direction of society around police murdering unarmed people of color.

Families of those whose lives have been stolen by the police have stepped forward to join the Call for Rise Up October. Their powerful stories of what the system has done to them, and their cries for justice -- not just in their cases but for what is happening all over this country -- need to be heard right in the heart of New York City.

We want to make it possible for at least 100 families to travel to New York City to be able to put this before the country and the world -- to join with many thousands of others to demand that people take a stand -- Which Side Are You On? Do you stand with the people who are being victimized by police terror and murder and who refuse to live in a society like this, or do you stand with those who condone or justify these crimes? 
Go to to contribute to raising $100,000.

Police terror and these murders must stop, and your contribution can be a key part of stopping this.
