The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department

Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)

(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)

Residents knew it was BS. 

Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”

Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department

Do not let her story go ignored

ADVANCING JUSTICE CONFERENCE IS COMING UP!

Our team has been working hard to bring you great plenaries and workshops so you can help us build our movement nationwide. As you will see on our website, 

our plenaries and workshops provide Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders the opportunity to strategize and mobilize so we can have a lasting impact on all the issues we care about. You’ll find workshops on a range of issues, including on critical policy issues like immigration, voting rights, economic security, as well as helpful information on capacity building, and organizing and movement building. 

Check out what we have to offer and help us spread the word. Tweet about our workshops using #AJC2014 and follow us at @JustConf. Thanks for your support and help to make this the most successful conference yet!

The Advancing Justice Conference is the largest national conference focusing on civil and social justice issues impacting Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Advancing Justice began the conference six years ago to provide a meeting forum where the AAPI community and our allies can strategize and mobilize to make lasting impact on the issues we care about. 

Each year, our conference showcases the leading voices in the AAPI and racial justice movement. Speakers have included: Kiran Ahuja, the Honorable Denny Chin, Rep. Judy Chu, Sen. Dick Durbin, Rep. Mike Honda, Harold Koh, Norman Y. Mineta, Tom Perez, Ai-jen Poo, Gautam Raghavan, Jose Antonio Vargas, Angry Asian Man’s Phil Yu, and many more leaders from the government, the civil rights movement and the media.
