Saturday, August 23th // #WeWillNotGoBack March for Justice for Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Ramarley Graham & all victims of police brutality
Over the past several weeks, people across the country have been outraged and hearbroken by the recent deaths of Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Eric Garner and others who have unjustly lost their lives to police brutality and violence. These tragic and unnecessary deaths have sparked actions and protests calling for justice and an end to the excessive use of force on communities of color across the country.
On Saturday, August 23rd, Communities United for Police Reform will join thousands of people from across the region to call for:
- Justice for Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham & countless others killed and/or brutalized by NYPD officers
- Zero tolerance for police brutality
- End to discriminatory "broken windows" policing that targets communities of color and fails to keep New Yorkers safe.
If you want to march with Communities United for Police Reform, meet us at one of the 2 ferry depatures listed below or look for us/our member organizations at the march. CPR member groups plan to march together.
This march is being organized by the family of Eric Garner with support from the National Action Network, NAACP, 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East & the United Federation of Teachers. Please visit the National Action Network for full details on the #WeWillNotGoBack March.
