Join members of the Justice 4 Alan Blueford Coalition to spread the word about Alan Blueford and his untimely death at the hands of the Oakland Police.
Center stage will be at 477 25th St., a cooperative gallery where there will be an Alan Blueford table, a display, timeline, information, flyers to pass out, petitions to gather signatures and much camaraderie. Thousands of people will likely pass through this gallery during Art Murmer., and thousands more will be out and about.
