Our Goals: 1) Most importantly, we encourage people to exercise their right to observe the police and to advocate for one another. Our aim is that incidents of police brutality will never go undocumented, unreported, and that the cop will never go free from prosecution.
2) Reduce police violence by directly observing the police on the street, documenting incidents and keeping police accountable. We seek to provide support to victims whenever possible.
3) Empower and educate the community to resist police abuse. Our aim is to arm citizens of Oakland with the basic knowledge of their rights. We will do this by sharing information with the community, conducting “Know Your Rights” trainings, sponsoring rallies, supporting victims and other community based efforts to deal with the problem.
