The
Campaign

Officer Darren Wilson was never charged for killing Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
Former officer Daniel Pantaleo was not charged for the murder of Eric Garner although chokeholds were banned in New York City.
Officer Jeronimc Yanez was tried but got off of all charges for killing Philando Castile, whose death was captured by video.
At least 7 Louisville cops raided Breonna Taylor’s apartment while she was asleep on a wrongful, no-knock warrant. She was shot 5 times and killed, not one cop was charged for her death.
Six Baltimore police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray either had charges dropped, were acquitted or their trial ended in a mistrial.

Do you ever wonder how cops get off?

We see the videos, hear the witnesses and the public outcry but the cops still walk. Whether it’s a wrongful stop and frisk, harassment, brutality or a killing, we see cops get off because the system allows it!

Cops are not only protected by law, but by politicians and media. The systems that protect them were not designed to protect Black communities and other communities of color. To be free and safe, we will need radical transformation and a new vision for safety. Justice is not in a charge or verdict but in police-free communities with solutions that eliminate violence, reduce harm and create healing and community accountability. Join us!

How Cops
Get Off

A three-part animated video series, breaks down three major elements that keep cops protected and reinforce racist practices that harm our communities: the public narrative, the protectors in the legal system, and laws.

Part 1: The Narrative

We are constantly bombarded with cop shows, movies and media that make us think cops do no wrong and lead society to call for increased police presence, it’s called copaganda.

The Narrative. Learn more

Part 2: The Protectors

Police and their unions, prosecutors, and politicians let police escape accountability.
