Dontre Hamilton was shot 14 times at Red Arrow Park on April 30, 2014. While his death was ruled a homicide, his killer (a former Milwaukee Poilce Officer) still walks the streets as a free man. This Friday (January 30) will mark 9 months since this crime took place, however we are yet to get justice for Dontre, and/or the other families that have seen their sons and loved ones taken from them at the hands of negligent police officers and racist vigilantes.
This Friday we will be taking our fight directly to the individuals who are responsible for Dontre’s death, to hold them accountable for their actions and subsequent inaction. Our fight is for Justice. Our fight is to end the the explicit and implicit racial profiling practices that lead to the criminalization of black men and women (and other people of color) by the police force and businesses in this city.
Please join us at Red Arrow Park (1000 N. Water St.) Friday January 30 at 6 pm as we rally and demonstrate to demand justice in MKE. We hope to see you there! Lets show up! Lets make them feel both our presence and our pressure!

Governor Walker’s proposed state budget would cut $300 million from the UW system and place it under the control of the politically-appointed Board of Regents instead of the elected state legislature.
We stand in opposition to Walker’s plan to sacrifice the quality, accessibility, and affordability of higher education in Wisconsin to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy.
Education Is a Right!
No More Cuts to Our Universities!
