COMMUNITY & POLICE RELATIONS: The APA is a grassroots organization dedicated to criminal justice reform, specializing in bettering community and police relations through advocacy, education, and policy. File A Report

“Operation Stay Engaged”

is a program that educates the community on the political process, beginning with their local ward chairs and committee representatives, all of the way up to their U.S. Congressman. We strongly encourage voter registration and teach citizens to thoroughly investigate current politicians’ positions on the issues that affect their quality of life.

“Ensures The Peoples Voices Heard”

and the community is included in making decisions that affect them. We host conversations in which community members, law enforcement, and local politicians have candid dialogue about the state of their community focusing on a plan to ensure a safe and healthy quality of life for all.

“Activism Is Love”

A youth leadership institute that teaches youth how to organize and mobilize around community and police issues with the goal of preparing young people for leadership, politics and the social justice movement. The program prepares them to launch their own campaign on issues important to them. Participants have the opportunity to work with officials and conduct media interviews on their grassroots organizing work.

On April 4, the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, Fight for $15, labor unions and groups organizing under the Movement for Black Lives banner will join forces in a day of action and fighting back, the way Dr. King would, in a call across the country to fight systemic racism and poverty wages that are dragging communities of color down. The two most powerful protest movements in the country will also come together to fight back Republican efforts to curtail protest via draconian legislation from coast-to-coast.

We’ll fight members of Congress and state legislatures’ drive to implement so-called right-to-work laws; and local governments’ moves to suppress protest. We’ll protest the poverty wages that still persist, especially for workers of color, and the police shootings and institutional racism that black people live with every day.

White supremacy and corporate greed have always been linked in America, and our parallel movements for economic and racial justice are committed to dismantling these twin forces of oppression.

That’s why, in the spirit of Dr. King, Fight for $15, SEIU, Alliance for Police Accountability, 1HOOD, BOOM Concepts, UJAMAA Collective, Thomas Merton Center, Plant Parenthood, 32BJ, Pittsburgh United, and other allies are standing up together and fighting back against racism and demanding an end to poverty wages. We know we have a right to protest, and we will not be deterred by Republican-led efforts to silence us.

We will gather at Freedom Corner and march to the Jeron X Grayson Center for our program of dynamic speakers and performers, on the historic Hill District where riots broke out after the assassination of MLK Jr. in 1968.
