The Stolen Lives Altar celebrates the lives of our Loved Ones killed at the hands of Law Enforcement.
Mesha Monge-Irizarry, whose only child, Idriss Stelley was killed by SFPD in June 2001 during a pychiatric intervention at the SF Sony Metreon Complex, has been setting up the Altar with our help for the past 4 years.

Mesha heads the SF_Chapter of Education Not Incarceration, and Idriss Stelley Action & Resource Center, agencies that are not “anti-law enforcement”. but pro-compliance with PD policies and procedures, monitoring racially biased policing, and bringing Healing between Poor and People of Color Communities and Police departments under increased scrutiny regarding misconduct.
