UFJ:
The United Families For Justice (UFJ) is a collective of family members from Southern CA who have lost loved ones to police murder #DeathByCop and community members who have been personally affected by police brutality, including community-based organizations, organizers, students, teachers, clergy, faith-based leaders, activists, LGBTIQ folks, houseless folks, and so on. We have been meeting since the Winter in response to the massive outcry for justice after Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and Ezell Ford’s families were denied justice.

We will also provide victim advocacy and support for survivors

UAPTSD intervenes when people are unaware of their rights and support the necessary steps required in obtaining justice in cases of police brutality. The group encourages victim testimonials to illustrate how people have suffered from police brutality, so other victims know they are not alone. The victim testimonials which can be in video or written format are helpful in providing justice to the victims of police brutality. The testimonials also serve to expand support for the organization in making police brutality a global issue.

Role of a UAPTSD Advocate

The advocates are the persons solely for the victim/survivor or their surviving family and open to exploring any and all options. An advocate provides services in a non-judgmental, empathetic way by empowering the survivor to make their own decisions based on their own unique circumstances. Helping them identify the range of options available to help protect their rights and safety;

Assisting the victims/survivors or their families in asserting those rights against and denouncing police assault, harassment and brutality; including

Providing a safe space in which survivors may disclose information;

Giving support and encouragement throughout legal processes or advocating for legal assistance;

Providing information and offering guidance on finding answers when questions arise;

Ensuring that if system response to victims/survivors or their families is unfair, then promoting open and direct action empowering the victims, survivors and their families.

Providing continued support when processes have concluded.
