October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality

Web       http://www.october22.org/

Mobilizing every year since 1996 for a National Day of Protest on October 22nd, bringing together those under the gun and those not under the gun as a powerful voice to expose the epidemic of police brutality.

The Coalition also works on the Stolen Lives Project, which documents cases of killings by law enforcement agents nationwide. The second edition of the Stolen Lives book documents over 2000 cases in the 1990s alone. Research and collection of data in preparation for a second volume continues, and volunteers for researching or editing are welcomed.
