*Note that other public events may be added

In addition to the items listed above, we plan to have ample time to get out on the streets and to pursue leads that we learn of. Also, we have other events already planned in both towns (for example, when in Oakland we’ll join Berkeley Copwatchers in a meeting and when in Denver I’ll be speaking with some law students).

In the meantime, we’ll continuing doing our thing here in Cape Town, South Africa. Stay safe and I’m looking forward to seeing many of y’all over the remainder of the Police Accountability Tour!police-accountability-tour-rectangular
