On Tuesday, June 20th at 6pm the Berkeley City Council will meet in a special session to vote on Berkeley’s participation in the Urban Shield weapons exposition and trade show. Urban Shield advocates overly aggressive use of force in law enforcement, tactics which increase the militarization of the police and disproportionately affect communities of color.
This vote has been scheduled and rescheduled multiple times, and is the only agenda item for this session; we believe this will be the last opportunity Berkeley residents will have to weigh in on the decision.
There will be a rally at the above location just before the session begins at 6:00. Please also sign our petition! (it's a separate action on Amplify)
