Memphis United says
Black and Brown communities across the nation continue to be over-policed and aggressively targeted when compared to their white counterparts. Moreover, emerging data continues to demonstrate that police killings disproportionately take the lives of people of color. Here in Memphis, the story is no different: the murders of Black civilians such as Elton Hayes, Jesse Bogand, and Duanna Johnson have blatantly and tragically demonstrated the need for greater civilian oversight of police to put an end to the persistent practice of racial profiling. Though MPD currently has policy prohibiting racial profiling, only through civilian oversight can we ensure that this policy is enforced and that officers in violation are properly disciplined.

Join us for a night of righteous music and an opportunity to learn about and get involved with Memphis United’s ongoing campaign for greater police accountability, transparency, and community oversight.
