This summer you’ll have the opportunity to attend two events in Austin, TX to propel the burgeoning police accountability movement forward. The first is a benefit concert to be held tomorrow, Thursday, July 18th, and the second is the 2nd Annual Police Accountability Summit to be held on Saturday, August 17th.
Over the past year the Peaceful Streets Project has gone from an idealist vision in the minds of a few activists as to how we as a community could stand up to out of control criminal cops, to a powerful grassroots organization that has exposed the criminal, unprofessional and violent nature of far too many cops, and forced local cops to amend their behavior when dealing with the public.

The criminal actions of coward cops Patrick Oborski and Robert Snider of the Austin Police Department, and the subsequent cover up of their crimes by Police Chief Art Acevedo and the rest of the department, to include Internal Affairs, spurned a movement that is now affecting culture change from big cities to small towns throughout the country!

In the past year alone, this nascent organization has given victims of police abuse a platform to share their stories, hosted dozens of Know Your Rights Trainings, organized over 100 cop watches, and hosted a successful police accountability summit where we gave out 100 cameras to people in need so that they could film the police. We were also named the grassroots movement of the year, and now we are going national. We have a dozen chapters nationwide in cities such as Houston, New York, Manchester NH and Sandusky OH, and we may have 20 more chapters launched by the end of the summer.

Tomorrow, Thursday, July 18th, liberty rocker Jordan Page will be coming to Austin, Texas to perform at a private benefit concert to help raise funds for our 2nd Annual Police Accountability Summit that will be held on August 17th. The money we raise is necessary to offset the costs of the venue, as well as the costs associated with our featured guests which include Bobby Seale, co-founder of the Black Panthers, Radley Balko, author of Rise of the Warrior Cop, Carlos Miller of PhotographyIsNotaCrime.com, Pete Eyre of CopBlock.org, and musicians B. Dolan and Tatiana Moroz.

Please RSVP today by going to our rally site (https://rally.org/jordanpagePSPconcert-austin) and donating at least $50. The rally site is the preferred form of payment, but cash at the door will also be accepted. Because this is a private house concert, the location will only be disclosed to those who RSVP through the rally site, or who email Antonio Buehler (antonio@buehlered.com) directly with a commitment to attend and pay in person.

In addition to coming to the benefit concert, you can help us by sharing ” target=”_blank”>this video with friends via email, facebook and twitter. And like people from all over the country who are dedicated to fighting police abuse, you can make plans to come to our 2nd Annual Police Accountability Summit. Whether or not you plan to make the trip to Austin, you can donate to help us offset the costs of providing this free benefit to the community. Please go to peacefulstreets.com/donate for more information on ways to donate.

Finally, the Austin Chronicle’s “Best of Austin” ballot is now available online. The Peaceful Streets Project won last year’s Best Grassroots Movement, which provided us with both free media coverage and credibility among many of the establishment types in Central Texas. Please go to the Politics and Personalities section of the ballot, and type in “Peaceful Streets Project” in the “Grassroots Movement” box. Once again, you can vote at http://www.austinchronicle.com/feedback/bestof/13/.

We appreciate all of your support, and with your continued support, we will continue to eat away at the police state, empower people to stand up for their rights, and bring people together to protect and serve each other!

So, what do you think?
