Milwaukee, January 2: New Year Same Fight: National March, Press Conference, & Community Gathering


Calling All Concerned Citizens of Milwaukee:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! We just want to thank all of you that rocked with us in 2014, and help bring attention and awareness to Dontre Hamilton’s case and the Milwaukee fight for justice. It was truly amazing to see all of your faces and stand alongside you to fight for freedom in our city. NOW WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO OUR FIGHT FOR JUSTICE! LET’S GO!

We will be gathering at Red Arrow Park (1000 N. Water St.) on Friday, January 2nd at 2:30pm for a National March and Press Conference with the Rainbow Push Coalition to announce in MKE the Federal Investigation into the murder of Dontre Hamilton.


Please join us at 2.30pm at Red Arrow Park (our ground zero, where Dontre Hamilton was shot 14 times by former Milwaukee Police Officer Christopher Manney). From there we will march down to the Federal Building to join with Reverend Jessie Jackson & the Rainbow Push Coalition where together we will host a joint press conference and subsequent march back to Red Arrow Park together.

Once back at Red Arrow we will do a small rally and address the crowd to give logistics for what’s coming next. We will leave Read Arrow Park shortly thereafter together as an escorted processional to Holy Temple First Born Church (4960 N. 18th Street). The processional will line up along Water Street, with the first car beginning at Buffalo Wild Wings (1123 N. Water St.).

We are asking that everyone join our processional to the church for a mass community gathering (beginning at 6pm), where we will be joined by Reverend Jackson and many of the families who have lost loved ones to police violence and brutality. We will host a community meeting where we will discuss next steps and how to elevate our fight, to ensure that we get justice for Dontre Hamilton as well as all of the families of this city who have been wronged by our Police Department.

Please join us for the national march and press conference at Red Arrow at 2.30pm, then the processional and community meeting at Holy Temple First Born at 5.30pm. We hope to see you there.

Note: If you cannot join us for the march and processional please join us directly at the church at 5:30pm. The meeting will begin at 6pm.
