Event description

Description

Greetings! This year, PrYSM celebrates our Sweet Sixteen! November marks over a decade and a half of Peace, Love, Power! PrYSM is the only organization in Rhode Island committed to training, developing, and supporting Southeast Asian young people, queer and trans youth of color, and survivors of police violence to become leaders and changemakers. In these tough political times, PrYSM’s steadfast dedication to liberating our communities from state violence through direct action, community programs, and movement building is vital.

WE PASSED THE COMMUNITY SAFETY ACT! On Thursday, June 1st 2017, Providence City Council voted 13-1 to pass the most comprehensive racial profiling legislation in this country! However, our work is not over. We are amidst planning our 2018 rollout work, which, following the ordinance’s passage into law in January 2018, will includes ensuring proper implementation; educating our community and our bases about their new rights; and supporting other municipalities with similar policy campaigns for police accountability.

We now have an amazing tool to hold Providence police accountable to their profiling practices. But we know, only we can save ourselves. We build strength in our neighborhoods through cop watch by the Community Defense Project. We hold a mothly, loving space for young people with After Hourz. Rising Sisters is a brand new program that offers a space for community building through gender and queer justice lens. The Organizing Circle is building a campaign to disrupt and end the school-to-prison pipeline.
