Something you can do RIGHT NOW: Call Chief Ronald Pavlik at 202-962-2150 to demand that the violent officer who attacked and tased Tapiwa Musonza be removed from duty. He is a threat to our communities and safety.

“...the family thought it was their handyman and opened up. ICE agents walked in. They interrogated the whole family for a while and then took both parents away, leaving their children behind.” 👆ICE terrorizes our communities every day.

We still may have two weeks to stop Trump's heinous plan to mass deport children and families -- the "family op." ICE isn't allowed to hold kids in adult detention facilities. So it has to use hotel rooms to hold kids & families. NO hotels should be

. this happened in Ward 1. Even when Black people try to de-escalate a situation with the police, this happens. I am furious as a constituent and afraid for the lives of our Black youth. This violence and these indignities cannot continue!
