Use your heels to heal our community! On May 6, 2012, Alan Blueford was murdered just weeks before he was to graduate from high school by OPD officer Miguel Masso. Since then, his family and their supporters in the Justice for Alan Blueford coalition – JAB – have marched and protested to demand justice. On the second anniversary of his death, the Blueford family asks you to participate in a walk around Lake Merritt to remember Alan and to remind the community that officer Masso continues to patrol the streets of Oakland with a gun at his side. Please join us to honor the memory of our son, Alan, and make sure that no more of our young people fall victim OPD’s racial profiling policies and violent practices.Added to the calendar on Monday Apr 14th, 2014 4:45 PM
