On October 2, protesters rallied outside the Sarasota Police Department headquarters to for the Night Out Against Police Brutality. The demonstration raised awareness about the need to divest from prisons, police and surveillance, and reinvest in poor communities and communities of color, especially in jobs, education and community-based drug and mental health treatment. More police and prisons is not the answer! The answer is putting people over profit — economically, socially and politically.
