Austin Weekend Recap – Peaceful Streets Summit & Copblocking

This past weekend in Austin was a busy one for myself and Jacob.

Saturday was a full day – at the 2nd Annual Police Accountability Summit hosted by the Peaceful Streets Project we both spoke and interviewed a number of people. That night we joined a few dozen others and patrolled 6th St – a busy entertainment/bar area, while some friends in a vehicle patrolled Austin’s east side.

On Sunday we reconnected with Photography Is Not a Crime founder Carlos Miller and interviewed him [stay tuned for that video] and he interviewed us for a book he’s working on [be on the lookout for that in 2014]. Check out his thorough overview of the summit: Peaceful Streets Project Brings Activists and Journalists Together for Police Accountability Conference

We also spent some time on an integral task – organizing content.
