On July 1st over a hundred people gathered in Wyman Park Dell to protest the formation of the Hopkins private police force on the day that the bill permitting this would go into effect. Representatives from multiple university and community organizations spoke at the rally, including individuals from the Coalition Against ICE, the Garland Sit-In, and the Hopkins Nurses Union.

A representative from TRU spoke at the event, saying that as workers of the university who earn revenue for the university in the form of teaching students and pulling in grants, we have a right to determine how the fruits of our labor are used at this university. Moreover, because we are a part of this university, we have a responsibility to hold the institution and its administrators responsible when they abuse their power and undemocratically push through a racist, armed, and unaccountable police force.
