#SayHerName Activist Frances Garrett Joins Bodies of Revolution: Women Rising Against the Violence of Police, States & Empire Panel


JUST ANNOUNCED: Frances Garrett, #SayHerName activist, joins Bodies of Revolution: Women Rising Against the Violence of Police, States & Empire panelists on Saturday, 5 Dec at Columbia Law School, NYC.

On 14 August, Fran's daughter Michelle Cusseaux was killed at close range by a Phoenix police officer who had been called to escort her to a mental health facility. Since then, Fran has been involved in calls for police reform, notably marching her daughter's casket through downtown Phoenix weeks after the shooting, calling for an outside agency to investigate the wrongful death. Her efforts have been met with reforms on the part of the city of Phoenix, including the creation of the police department's mental health advisory board and a seven-member police unit dedicated to crisis intervention. Ms. Garrett is currently working with the AAPF to develop the #SayHerName campaign, a multi-dimensional project focused on resisting police brutality against Black women.
