CPS on Trial

Stand with youth being criminalized, let’s put CPS on trial and help hold them to a higher standard for our families and youth! #CPSonTrial #LoveTheYouth #TheFightsNotOver till all the #youthAreFree!

Their trial runs through February 28th, Monday-Thursday, from 9AM to 4PM, in Courtroom 3FA, Judge Cheryl B. Carey

As a part of our collective campaign against racist systems that oppresses our youth, We are asking folx to join in helping support the youth currently on trial for the Jungle Shooting that occurred in Seattle a few years back. They have minimal if any support from community and are feeling isolated as they are facing this system by themselves. These youth have been subjected to structural violence by state sponsored systems all of their lives, yet now they sit facing a lifetime of imprisonment while the state remains unaccountable. This is why it is our duty to stand with them and show up. Where the state fails, the community must build. These youth have been through a lot and and deserve better.

Let’s provide them with some encouragement by letting them know we are here with them. With the uncertainty of their future at hand, any support will help boost their morale. This can come in the form of presence at court, video or physical visits, letters, funds for commissary and phone, or just thoughts and prayers. For the sake of their privacy, please contact Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Awareness Group or Xing Hey for further details if you want to support them in any manner.

Visiting and funding can be managed through Securus Technologies htps://securustech.net/

Love and Soldarity!
