seen both young and old people in her community being pulled over and even
as recently as 5 weeks ago has seen the beating of a young women in her
neighborhood of South Placentia. She is sick of this happening, and believes
that residents need to come together to only educate themselves but actually
start empowering one another and themselves. "There is no reason why we
should be ashamed or scared like this"
Others will speak upon how Immigrant and Indigenous Women do not feel safe
in their communities in Orange County due to the INS' involvement with
the Anaheim Police Dept.
THIS EVENT IS A PEACEFUL POLICE BRUTALITY PROTEST, ONE ORGANIZED NOT BY ANY
ORGANIZATION BUT ACTUALLY PUT ON BY THE COMMUNITY ITSELF FOR THE COMMUNITY.

BE CHILDREN AND MANY FAMILIES PRESENT, SO PLEASE KEEP THE DRAMA AND ANY
PERSONAL IDEOLOGY AND WAYS OF BRINGING FORTH ACTION OUT OF THIS EVENT. THIS
IS A PEACEFUL EVENT TO BRING TOGETHER THE ORANGE COUNTY COMMUNITY AGAINST
