Coalition Organized Against Chokeholds

AJP’s flagship campaign – COACH – mobilizes people and organizations of good will to oppose the chokeholds officials impose on individuals, families and communities.  Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who are suffering the devastating outcomes. COACH brings us together to uphold a fundamental tenet of America’s legal system:  that the accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty. 

How Can I Help?

Our approach is comprehensive, targeting the roots of systemic injustice through:

  • Advocacy for Justice: Stand up for the rights of the oppressed and marginalized, and advocate for systemic changes to our legal system.
  • Charity and Generosity: Provide financial assistance, food, clothing, and basic necessities to those in need.
  • Hope and Encouragement: Share stories of faith, resilience, and triumph over adversity to inspire those facing difficult circumstances.
  • Visiting and Caring: Offer companionship to the afflicted, the hopeless, and the lonely, fostering a community of care and support.
  • Emotional and Spiritual Care: Provide comfort and guidance to those who are suffering, helping them find meaning and strength in their trials.
  • Prayer and Support: Engage in prayer and offer a comforting ear to those in need, embodying the compassion at the heart of our mission.
  • Promote Unity and Inclusion: Ensure our communities are welcoming and supportive of all individuals, regardless of their challenges.
