Thursday 2/21, Boston, "Saggy Pants is Not a Crime! Stop Criminalizing our Youth!"

The "Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts" supports police abuse of "indecent exposure" laws to arrest Black youth wearing "saggy pants"--with penalties of up to three years in prison. At a time of record-high Black youth poverty and unemployment--and staggering police racism and abuse--this scapegoating only aims to distract attention from the real problems and solutions.Come join us to discuss who's behind this attempt to criminalize our youth--and how we can organize to fight back.
