Copwatch and Family Demand Answers in Death of Kayla Moore

Berkeley Police Review Board Disrupted on Anniversary of Kayla Moore’s Death
On the evening of February 12, a small crowd gathered outside Gaia Apartments in downtown Berkeley to demand answers regarding the death of Kayla Moore, a black transgender woman who was killed by Berkeley police at the beginning of 2013. The protest was only the most recent action in a year-long campaign by Berkeley Copwatch and Kayla’s family after BPD refused to release the details of her death, which occurred after a "mental health evaluation" ended in six BPD officers pinning her to the ground and suffocating her.

When the speakers concluded, the crowd of about forty people marched to the Police Review Board meeting, chanting “Justice For Kayla Moore!” and “No Justice, No Peace! Fuck the Police!” The Police Review Board has allegedly been involved in an inquiry into Kayla’s death since last year but has yet to release any information to her family.
