#RiseUp4Ramarley - Actions for Ramarley Graham
April 12 should have been Ramarley Graham's 23rd birthday. It's been over 4 years since Ramarley was killed in his own home by NYPD Officer Richard Haste, after multiple officers busted into his home without a warrante. Ramarley was killed in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother. He was unarmed and not commiting a crime. Today, no officers have been held accountable for killing Ramarley and engaging in misconduct before, during and after the incident, including threatening and abusing Ramarley's family after he was killed. We are standing with Ramarley's family in their fight to hold ALL officers accountable by calling for Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton to #FireNYPD who killed Ramarley Graham, abused his family and engaged in related misconduct. Be sure to visit www.riseup4ramarley.org to learn more and find out how you can join the campaign.
Location: Varies week-to-week and includes online actions.
