WHAT: A rally at the Milwaukee County Court House (901 N. 9th St., Milwaukee) followed by a 2-mile march (ETA 50 mins) to the Joel Acevedo mural at S. 6th St. and W. Greenfield Ave.
WHEN: Meet at the Courthouse by 4PM.
WHY: Michael Mattioli, the Milwaukee police officer who killed Joel Acevedo by applying a 10-minute chokehold, will have another court appearance that afternoon. The videos from the first officers on the murder scene have still not been released. Nor has the tape of the 911 call. Justice for Joel Acevedo requires the release of these items and the dismissal of Mattioli from the Milwaukee Police Department.
WHO: Speakers will include members of the Acevedo family along, Attorney Benjamin Crump, Attorney B’Ivory LaMarr, Christine Neumann-Ortiz from Voces de la Frontera, and Liz Brown from Justice Wisconsin.
Crump is the nationally-known attorney representing the family of George Floyd and other victims of police violence who has recently joined the Acevedo case.
