#BlackOutTrenton #NJShutItDown


On 1/16/2015 hundreds will descend on our state capitol to protest the police brutality happening within our state and nation. We will keep showing them our numbers, our strength and our determination until our demands are met. We continue to shut it down until police are held accountable for their actions. We will continually raise the banner that Black Life Matters.

We Demand Justice.
For Mike Brown.
For Eric Garner.
For Akai Gurley.
For All Those Innocent People of Color Killed By The Misuse of Police Force.

We March Together, As One.

We look forward to seeing you there!
