Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color

A timely examination of the ways Black women, Indigenous women, and other women of color are uniquely affected by racial profiling, police brutality, and immigration enforcement.

However, his health is recovering and he has been so deeply touched by all of the support that he was showered with from all of you. And of course beating the charges was such an incredible win!

Because of the tremendous support Herman received behind the assault, and because ...........READ MORE
