Family Eldercare condemns the excessive use of force in a video recently released by KXAN, where a local woman, Simone Nicole Griffith, is shown being held down by one APD officer while another repeatedly punches her, and a third looks on.
Ms. Griffith is experiencing homelessness, like many Family Eldercare clients. We believe every person, regardless of age, race, ability, housing or socioeconomic status, deserves safety and respect.
Family Eldercare calls on our City Leaders and APD to join us in examining how current policies, behaviors and communications contribute to dehumanizing members of our community. And we demand consequences when anyone’s human rights are violated.
