Where? Beck Recreation Center, 800 Telluride St., Aurora 80011
When? Saturday, February 29, 1:00-3:00 pm
Recent encounters between Aurora Police officers and members of the community have raised concerns about the level of force utilized on individuals and the impact it has on police-community relationships. It’s important that all community members feel safe in their daily activities without the expense of endangering their basic constitutional rights.
Join us as Aurora Mayor Pro Tem Nicole Johnston welcomes the ACLU of Colorado, Jonathan McMillan of Be Better Than Average, LLC, NAACP-Aurora Branch, Second Chance Center, Colorado Black Women for Political Action (CBWPA), Kat Strategy, LLC, and many other active community leaders for a Know Your Rights presentation on what you can do if you are stopped by the police. Together, we will learn about de-escalation strategies to protect your safety and suggest recourses of action in the event your rights may be violated. Light refreshments will be provided.
This is an opportunity to gather as a community to ensure that The City of Aurora remains accountable to the people!
