The Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO) is a political and social justice coalition working in Benton Harbor, Michigan, US. It was founded to protest the June 16, 2003 death of a 28 year old African-American, Terrance Shurn, while being pursued by Benton Townshippolice. A riot followed the death, as accounts differed as to whether Shurn had lost control of his motorcycle or had been forced off the road by police. BANCO organized rallies in the days following Shurn’s death and the resulting disturbance. It has since broadened its scope to support candidates for local office. BANCO retains its focus on monitoring police activities.BANCO attempts to continue the work of the American civil rights movement.
