The In Our Names Network is a national network of organizations, campaigns and individuals working to end police violence against Black women, girls, trans and gender nonconforming people.
Our Four Main Areas of Work:
Documenting sexual violence by law enforcement officers stationed in and around schools through a national participatory research project
Building responses to unmet mental health needs beyond police
Developing strategies for police accountability beyond prosecution
Building safety for Black trans women and GNC people
We celebrated our fifth year anniversary as a network working to end police brutality against Black women, trans and GNC folks! This report is a reflection of one-on-one conversations hosted by Network Coordinator Lauren Williams-Batiste with In Our Names network partners between January and March 2021 to assess our work to date and inform our structure and campaigns going forward.
