Hungry For Justice

1/12

On April 21, 2016, A grandmother, two artists, a political candidate and a preschool teacher announced the beginning of a hunger strike calling for the resignation of SFPD Chief Greg Suhr following corruption, racist scandals and violence within the San Francisco Police Department as well as two police killings of people of color within six months. The five San Francisco residents set up camp outside the Mission Police Station, refusing to move or eat until the chief resigned or was fired. With the community's support behind them, they continued their strike for seventeen days and, ultimately, Suhr resigned from his position.
