There was the most recent prominent police murder of 13 year old Andy Lopez, in California; there is the growing rate of incarceration and caging of millions of people in US prisons; there is still Stop and Frisk and other racial profiling
policies.  And, thus there is the imperative to confront these policies and dismantle the practices of the discriminatory and cruel criminal justice system. Building Bridges presents highlights from two of the events sponsored by the STOP Mass Incarceration Network and Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) to STOP Stop & Frisk, to STOP Mass Incarceration!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
