In joining together in this event, Bay Area Stop Mass Incarceration Network, Bay Area Black Lives Matter and Trans Lives Matter, we intend to make our fight stronger and more united. The event will consist of a press conference, rally and creative speak-out, with the goal merging prominent artists with victims of and fighters against police murder to draw a line in society, boldly asking the question: ‘Which Side Are You On? “We also want to stand with the Immigrant community in the attacks coming down on them, and Lift up #SayHerName, and recognize Black Transgender Woman murdered by the State and vigilantes.

The press conference will feature Jidenna, Janelle Monae, Wondaland artists, and an organizer with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network. As part of strengthening this effort, Wondaland artists will perform their new protest song, “Hell You Talm Bout”, and then, an interactive community action.
