Interview with Dawn O’Neal, Ken Mitchell, and Jasmine McClain from Us Protecting Us
Us Protecting Us is dedicated to educating the public on dealing with police interaction with people of color and persons that live with disabilities, training ourselves to handle our own crises without police intervention, demanding accountability for police officers who brutalize and murder us, and demanding better resources for people living with disabilities. Over 50% of people murdered by the police live with a disability. We are adamant about not calling the police, but relying on the experience of people most affected to develop response plans to crises.
