Ways to Get Involved: RESOURCES
NAAAP Detroit firmly believes that Asian American communities must bolster Black-led justice organizing groups in Minneapolis, Detroit, and cities across the country. As we stand with the Black community, we choose to center George Floyd’s life and his family’s demands for justice while also working to quash underlying, systemic anti-Blackness.
Join us in our effort by partnering with us to advocate, educate, and donate, either by partnering with us using the link above, or by getting involved in our growing list of initiatives below:
Call DA Michael Freeman at (612) 324-4499 or your local DA and demand them to drop all charges against protestors—no more prosecutions.
Email your local police department to inquire about their use of body cameras, if any.
