Duke Ellington Bridge blocked in protest for murdered Black women

On the 21st of June, Freedom Fighters DC held a "say thir names" vigil on Duke Ellington Bridge, shutting down the bridge for the evening.The rally commemorated Black women who had been murdered, many of them by cops.

These protests are getting results: a recent police union study claims 71% of MPD officers are considering leaving MPD over the proposed and very mild police reform legislation. That could meand 71% less police harassment for people of color citywide.
