Mass Liberation Arizona – Let’s Talk Abolition: Prosecutor Accountability (Philly D.A. Screening)

July 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

THURSDAY, JULY 8th @ 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Locations:
TUCSON – Big Heart Coffee (4802 E 22nd St, Tucson, AZ 85711)
PHOENIX – Brooks Academy (3146 E. Weir Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85040)
Join Mass Liberation AZ for our first statewide event in-person (both in Tucson & South Phoenix), with a virtual post-discussion on Facebook next Thursday, July 8th! We will be screening the first episode of the groundbreaking series “Philly D.A.” which chronicles the election and first term of Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s current District Attorney and one of the “progressive” candidates of a new national movement around prosecutor accountability.
After the screening, Mass Liberation Tucson will host a discussion on the work of holding Pima County Attorney, Laura Conover, accountable to the demands of Black and directly impacted people. We will share tactics, strategies and stories of the very real obstacles we have faced with this newly elected “progressive” prosecutor, as we reach the halfway mark of her first term in office.
Mass Liberation Phoenix will discuss how the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has always targeted Black communities in South Phoenix. Join us to learn about how the growing movement for prosecutor accountability can help us end mass incarceration and fight for Black liberation both locally and nationally.
This event is FREE! Space is limited and pre-registration at bit.ly/regphillyda
We will be following COVID-19 regulations. PPE & light refreshments will be available.
