March with a Purpose for Ramarley
April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
More than five years ago, the NYPD murdered Ramarley Graham, a Black unarmed teenager, and brutalized his family in their own home. NYPD officers later reported that they had initially trailed Ramarley for “walking with a purpose.”
Instead of firing Richard Haste, the officer who shot and killed Ramarley inside the family’s home and in front of his 6-year-old brother & grandmother, Mayor de Blasio allowed him to resign this week. It is another slap in the face to Ramarley’s family. Ramarley Graham’s family deserves accountability for the remaining officers charged in his killing – Sergeant Scott Morris & Officer John McLoughlin.
On Tuesday, April 4th, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice will commemorate the death of Martin Luther King Jr. by demanding justice for Ramarley Graham. We will gather in Bryant Park at 6:00pm. We will walk with a purpose by marching for Ramarley, and the evening will culminate in a vigil for Black lives.
