Police Accountability Protest: Enough is ENOUGH!

July 30 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Please join us on July 30th at 5 PM outside Tacoma Police Headquarters on 3701 S Pine Street, as we gather and demand justice for our local victims of police brutality.
SAY THEIR NAMES:
-Benny Branch!
-Manuel Ellis!
-Said Joquin!
-Leonard Thomas!
We have had enough. Unfortunately, there have been many more victims of police brutality before these gentlemen, and there will continue to be more after them if we do not TAKE A STAND against systemic racism and FIGHT UNTIL WE SEE CHANGE AND ACCOUNTABILITY.
Enough is ENOUGH! We need change, NOW. Body cams are coming to Tacoma, but we still need them in Lakewood, and we need to end broken window policing, NOW! We are DONE with letting cops get away with murdering and abusing black people!
Come hear impactful and powerful speeches from local community organizers, family representatives, and the loved ones of these victims of police brutality. Come hear how you can participate to help make a difference so there will be NOT ONE MORE.
In the days leading up to the protest, we will post articles and other relevant information so you can get to know the background of these gentlemen and the demands of their families.
This is a continuation of the Protests for Police Accountability that took place on June 18th, July 2nd, and July 16th outside TPD Headquarters. We won’t stop until Bennie, Manny, Said, and Leonard get the justice they deserve.
*This is a peaceful protest! Parking is available in nearby streets and shopping center lots.
*Please wear a face mask! We will have some extra face masks available for those who need one. We will also have snacks, water, hand sanitizer, and first aid kits available.
