Demand Justice for Kayla Moore!
One year ago on February 12th, Kayla Moore was killed by Berkeley Police Officers. A transgender, African American woman with mental disabilities who was in her own home, she posed no threat to herself or others. Without any legal justification, Berkeley Police of- ficers grabbed her and attempted to take her into custody. On her stomach, handcuffed and struggling to breath under a pile of six police, Kayla died in the early hours of February 13th.
* COPS INVOLVED BE DISCIPLINED/ FIRED
* BERKELEY FUND CIVILIANS TO RESPOND TO MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCIES
The Berkeley City Council has ignored the issue! Berkeley Police Review Commission has still not completed an investigation of the officers involved or the failed policies that allow untrained cops to respond to mental health emergencies instead of real professionals.
RALLY AND VIGIL: Wed. February 12th 6pm at GAIA Building 2116 Allston Way (above Shattuck) MARCH TO SPEAKOUT: 7pm Police Review Commission Meeting South Berkeley Senior Center 2939 Ellis Street (off Ashby)
