All Eyes on Chelsea, Michigan
During the summer of 2020, youth-led protests, in sync with the nationwide anti-racist movement, were met with #SelectiveEnforcement from Chelsea Police.
Police issued tickets to kids, parents, and supporters, for walking in the street (and even for walking on the sidewalk) - a violation of their First Amendment rights. As a result, Chelsea was marked as intolerant, unwelcoming, and unsafe for People of Color and their allies.
Chelsea is the only city in Washtenaw County to have issued civil infractions to peaceful anti-racism protestors.
