Mapping Police Violence in Los Angeles
For this collaborative research project we worked with the Youth Justice Coalition (YJC), a South Los Angeles community organization. During the spring of 2011, we came together to understand how gang injunctions work as a tool of racist spatial regulation and management. YJC runs a youth community center and an alternative high school for system-involved […]

Also: Inglewood, a small city within Los Angeles County, has become the first entirely gang injuncted city in the nation. It happened a couple of years back around the time Walmart purchased all the space where the Hollywood Park Casino stands and years of rumors of a football team coming to Los Angeles became a foreseeable definite. I wonder what a map tracking gang injunction related citations and police violence would look like then (when Inglewood was first injuncted), now (that is has been cited as a gang injuncted area), and by the end of the Rams first season playing at the new 2billion dollar stadium being built in Inglewood. 

If you think the police violence taking place in Inglewood right now isn’t directly linked to gentrification and development efforts ask the Youth Justice Coalition. They’ll tell you. 

While it is a shame WE still have to do so much to get equality & Justice but every victory helps. Kudos to the tens of thousands of our #COURAGEOUS members and partners at PICO California, the #ACLUofNorthernCalifornia , #PolicyLink , #YouthJusticeCoalition , #AsianAmericansAdvancingJusticeLosAngeles and more who were on the front lines of this fight for fair policing every step of the way!

@thelastinternationale performing O Berta Berta, a prison song from the Parchman Farm in Mississippi at the #youthjusticecoalition center in #inglewood. They threw a free concert today to support the YES vote on Prop 47 which reduces many nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. It will save California billions which will then be put into education and mental health. Such an honor to work with them.
