Event: Enough is Enough! Organizing meeting
- Ted, Barbara, Katherine
- Every week at Tuesday, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
On May 1st, 2013, Benny Warr was waiting for the bus on Jefferson Ave. when police arrived to clear the block. Doing nothing wrong, he repeated he was waiting for the bus. He was then violently thrown from his wheelchair and brutalized by officers Joseph M. Ferrigno II, Anthony R. Liberatore, and Sgt. Mitchell R. Stewart II. Mr. Warr's experience is not singular. Police brutality occurs all over the city. In response, the community screams “Enough Is Enough!”
What does Enough Is Enough do?
Members of Enough Is Enough support people who have experienced racial pro filing, harassment, and brutality by the Rochester Police Department. We attend court proceedings, provide emotional and tactical support for people who have experienced police violence, work toward systemic change in law enforcement, and develop coalitions to hold the system accountable.
Enough Is Enough meets on every Tuesday from 7:00PM – 9:00PM at the Flying Squirrel Community Space (285 Clarissa St.), unless otherwise noted on our email list and Facebook page.
