About

In the first two years since Oscar Grant was killed, Oakland and Bay Area police continued their reign of violence against our communities. A Hearing on Racism and Police Violence was an event organized to amplify the voices of our communities to speak out on these issues.

The event was organized by grassroots organizers and community members, giving space for invited guests and the public to share testimony about the culture of criminalization and targeting that is endemic to city government.

It was a call for accountability for the murders of Oscar Grant, Derrick Jones, Raheim Brown, and others who were killed by police officers as well as other criminalization and infringements committed by the state.

Attendees heard from witnesses and victims, their friends and family members, activists, experts, and others.
