INFORMATION: Hey Family! We’ll be holding a fundraiser for the Coalition for Justice on Friday September 26th.

We ask for $5 at the door. The fight for #justicefordontre is going strong, but the Coalition for Justice will need funds to win. We invite you all to join us for some music and fun with fellow freedom fighters. Everyone is invited to share their own talents, as well, so feel free to bring your instruments!
We have come so far, but It is more important now than ever to sustain the momentum in our fight. Join us as we continue to organize and build towards a Milwaukee free of racist police and white supremacists. If we can all come together, there is no question that we will win!

MILWAUKEE, SEPTEMBER 30: JUSTICE FOR DONTRE – SPEAK OUT AND MARCH
Calling all Community Members, activists, friends, and family to stand with us against injustice on our streets and in our communities. EVENT INFO: http://tinyurl.com/kxfrr6r
September 30th will be the 5 month anniversary since Dontre Hamilton was murdered by a Milwaukee Police Officer. Dontre Hamilton was shot 14 times for resting in a public park. A lot of promises have been made by public officials looking for a photo op. But the truth is the truth – 5 months later and his family has yet to see justice.
Join us as we gather, once again, at Red Arrow Park (Ground Zero) to demand #justicefordontre and for all victims of MPD brutality and white vigilante violence. We will hear families of those that we have lost share their experiences through a public speak-out, followed by a march.
We will NOT tolerate racist police killing innocent people in our streets. On September 30th, we will rally as a community with these families and we will #standforjustice.
