List Of Demands/Underpinning Framework for Moral Monday CT
WE CALL FOR:
AN IMMEDIATE MORATORIUM ON SHOOT TO KILL AND AN END TO POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE
Every 28 hours a black person is killed by someone employed or protected by the government of the United States. Black people are targeted, denied due process and murdered because of dehumanizing/superhumanizing police practices. We want an immediate end to state sanctioned killings and violence against our communities.
FULL EMPLOYMENT FOR OUR PEOPLE
Every individual has the right to employment and a living wage. Inability to access employment and fair pay continues to marginalize our communities, ready us for imprisonment and deny us of our right to a life with dignity.
Our communities have a right to access housing that protects our families and allows for our children to be free from harm.
AN END TO THE SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE AND QUALITY EDUCATION
We want an end to policies that criminalize our young people as well as discriminatory discipline practices that bar access to quality education. Furthermore, we want our children to be able to access free, quality education including free or affordable public university.
FREEDOM FROM MASS INCARCERATION AND AN END TO THE PRISION INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
We want an end to over policing and surveillance of our communities. Policing historically enforces racist laws, policies and norms. Black and brown people, as a result, are criminalized, hyper-incarcerated, and a massive prison industrial complex built on the warehousing of black and brown people developed. We call for the cessation of mass incarceration and the eradication of the prison industrial complex.
