Actions Thursday! Downtown Pittsburgh

The city is currently in contract negotiations with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) so let's put pressure on our elected officials to do everything in their power to change this contract for the better.
1. Public access to disciplinary reports and police misconduct complaints
2. Grant the Citizen's Police Review Board subpoena power and authority to discipline officers
3. Police must reside in the city of Pittsburgh
Contact the Mayor's Office and demand he argue for the people of Pittsburgh in these contract negotiations to hold police accountable - 412 255 2626.
Rally outside the City-County Building on Thursday, May 7th before the arbitration hearing from 8:00am - 9:00am

Come out and support Tomi Lynn Harris' and the Allegheny County Jail Health Justice Project on May 7 at 3:00pm, in the courtyard of the Allegheny Courthouse.

We will be paying homage to Tomi's son, Frank Smart, who died in the care of the Allegheny County Jail in January of this year. Since Frank's death, two more people have died under the jail's contract with Corizon, a for-profit company providing healthcare to prisons. All of these deaths were preventable; ACJ and Corizon need to be held accountable.

Speakers include:
Tomi Lynn Harris
Michael David Battle
Julia Johnson
Mel Packer
