The Inter-American Commission has granted our request for a hearing on Police Violence and Systemic Racism against Persons of African Descent in the Americas. The hearing is scheduled for December 9, 2020.
The purpose of the hearing is to present to the Commission the patterns and practices of
systemic racism by law enforcement against communities of African descent in our various
countries. During the hearing, we will have the opportunity to provide testimony which the commission will use to issue observations and recommendations.
Please stay tuned for any updates.
