Wayne Dozier, grandfather of DJ Henry, a 20 yr old college student who was shot through the windshield of his car by Officer Aaron Hess in Pleasantville, NY in 2010. A case riddled with police cover-ups and lies, the family has been fighting for justice since their son's death.
Carla Sheffield, mother of Bo (Burrell) Ramsey White, a 26 yr old who was murdered by Boston police in August 2012 during a random traffic stop in the South End. The BPD has failed to explain the reason for the traffic stop and to identifythe officer that killed Bo.
Anwar Luckman, a young man who assaulted by Brookline police in May 2013. Though he was assaulted, he is facing fines and prison time.

March for Jobs and Freedom
Washington DC, August 24
The first March on Washington in 1963 saw thousands travel from across the country to demand jobs and freedom from Jim Crow segregation and racism. Fifty years later those demands are again on the table for many African-Americans. In light of the Supreme Court's ruling on the Voting Rights Act and the Zimmerman verdict, we need to commemorate this 50 year anniversary of the first March by continuing the struggle for racial justice.
