SRLP’s Sasha Alexander at Policing Post-Ferguson Conference at Yale University

Sasha Alexander, SRLP Director of Membership, speaks on “Community and Police Relationships” during the Yale Law School Justice Collaboratory “Policing Post-Ferguson” Conference in New Haven on April 16, 2105. Sasha shared some of the history of LGBT folks and police violence, the ways our communities are criminalized, and specific cases like the Jersey 4, Juan Evans’ search, Duanna Johnsons’ murder, and Monica Jones’ activism.

“Many people don’t realize that the Stonewall Riots were sparked by–among things–the tension between police and LGBT community, specifically TGNCI POC who were being brutalized and harassed.”
