“DEMANDING A JUSTULSA” ADVOCACY GROUP HOSTS COMMUNITY RESOURCE FAIR TO COINCIDE WITH CITY COUNCIL LISTENING SESSION ON RACIAL DISPARITIES IN POLICING
Demanding a JUSTulsa is proud to announce a powerful community resource fair at the Rudisill Regional Library this Saturday, June 22nd, from 10am – 2pm to coincide with the city council’s listening session on racial disparities on policing practices in Tulsa.
Numerous organizations will be present to share resources and support with members of the broader Tulsa community in an effort to tackle racial inequities in our city at a grassroots level.
Some of the organizations who are scheduled to attend include: NAACP LDF, The MetCares Foundation, Bail Project, YWCA, Edurec, ACLU OK, Racism Stinks, Terence Crutcher Foundation, Aware Tulsa, T.U.L.S.A., Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform (OCJR) and more!
Food and beverages will be provided for all children and family members who attend. We hope that this will be an opportunity for members of our community who have experienced racial disparities in our city’s policing practices to share their stories firsthand and get connected with local efforts for change.
This is a profound and historic moment in our city. Our neighbors, friends and families deserve to be heard, they deserve to be the drivers of change, and we are honored to be part of a broad and powerful community-lead effort to build a better Tulsa for us all.
LOCATION: Rudisill Regional Library-1520 N. Hartford, Tulsa, OK 74106
