Not Relying on the PoLice at all- Family Council and My Story

The police, an institution put in place to serve and protect civilians, has proven time and time again that when they are called, they spell nothing but trouble for black, brown, and/or poor people in general. I am Tibu, a formerly homeless youth resident of Homefulness and a long time member of POOR Magazine.

A Model for Everyone - Family Council at Deecolonize Academy-

Hello my name is Amir Cornish, and I’m from West Oakland. Family Council is a meeting that solves problems that we have with each other. The organization doesn't involve the police because they don’t solve problems.

 

Fixing Our Problems Non-Violently -Family Council at my school

Family Council/Elephant meeting is when families and teachers identify problems and conflicts and find a way to fix them non-violently. We have many other meetings for other things like revolutionary construction.

 

I've been in many family councils and seen many and it has changed my personality, but this one is about some different individuals.

Homefulness is like Heaven

Me and my family were homeless, we lost our brother to Gun Violence and we have dealt with a lot of violence and poverty in our lives. When i came to Homefulness i felt safe.
