“As a pubescent young woman at 15 years old, I had to get up and watch a man masturbate to go to school. And then when I came home, another man in a police uniform frisked me up. That’s humiliating and demoralizing. And it made me feel so dirty.” [1990s Washington, D.C.]
Now an adult and a mother, this remarkable woman shares her powerful story and fear for her own children after Trump and Sessions threaten law-and-order and stop-and-frisk that would further unfairly harm black and brown people, adding to the burden they already face within our racist criminal justice system.
When Trump said law-and-order and stop-and-frisk, I started to become physically ill. It’s going to happen again. How do I protect my children [in tears]?
WHAT CAN WE DO?
