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.” Richard Haste, the officer who shot Ramarley, and all of the officers involved in the shooting are still employed by the NYPD. The only way to get Haste off the street is to convince the Mayor to fire him.
On Tuesday, April 4th, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice will commemorate the death of Martin Luther King Jr. by demanding that the Mayor and the NYPD commissioner fire all of the officers involved in Ramarley’s killing. 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.
