Enough is enough. The community and the Acevedo family deserve JUSTICE for Joel Avecedo. Support the movement for Black and Brown Lives in Milwaukee and help us make our demands for reform clear. We will rally until we see change and justice.
WHAT: Join us for a community rally at the Milwaukee Police Association (6310 W Bluemound Rd, Milwaukee)
WHEN: The rally starts at 4:30 pm.
WHY: The community demands justice for Joel Acevedo’s death in April of this year. Michael Mattioli, a Milwaukee police officer killed Joel by applying a 10-minute chokehold and has not been held accountable. Recently he resigned in lieu of an impending investigation into his culpability. He can now retain his pension. Our community deserves answers and justice.
Guest Speakers: Members of the Acevedo Family, Christine Neumann-Ortiz from Voces de la Frontera, and Liz Brown from Justice Wisconsin.
