Below and attached are flyers to inform you of the upcoming dual celebration by the Jelani Institute. Both events promise to be memorable, and we hope the community forum will lead to life-changing reforms all across New Jersey. It's designed to change the way police respond to the precious people of our communities -- and to keep them from shooting first and asking questions later. Please spread the word.
Call or email with questions.
Many blessings, Carol Manigault and Caroline Brewer
