Tsuru for Solidarity members rose up to protest police brutality and called for an end to all unjust detention during a two-day virtual conference on June 6-7.
However, once the nation went into lockdown, organizers quickly switched to a virtual conference that included communities from all across the country.
The virtual conference, according to Tsuru, had 1,000 registered attendees and more than 15,000 viewers.
Tsuru networked with a number of local organizations and together they successfully convinced an Oklahoma senator to re-examine the plan.
The virtual conference was hosted by Lisa Doi, Dr. Satsuki Ina, Leslie Ishii, Mike Ishii, Lori Matsukawa and Gabby Viera, advocacy specialist with Detention Watch Network.
