We call on a broad range of justice and freedom organizers, organizations and coalitions to come together to fight an out of control government that kills, imprisons and spies as if we are the enemy. We are the people.

The government tells us to be afraid. It spies and harasses and imprisons. It murders and tortures.

Join us for a guided community discussion as we sort through feelings and ideas about how we might best respond.
