Please Join us in a PEACEFUL-FAMILY FRIENDLY Vigil/Rally and March for our Brother Teodoro Valencia Jr..Added to the calendar on Monday Jul 11th, 2016 11:54 AM
Teo was known and loved by many people. Teo was charming, caring and a loving person with a beautiful smile. He was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend. On March 11, 2016 Teo was wrongfully killed by the Newark Police Department. He was shot intentionally in the back with an AR-15 Assult Rifle by a single police officer.
Our family's goals are to bring justice for Teo, as well as truth and light to the darkness that the police have been using to mislead and opress our community.
Our demands for this event include the following:
1.) Get Justice for Teo. This includes a retraction and public apology from the Newark Police Department; as well as exposing the officer, prosecuting and firing him.
2.) De-militarize the Newark Police Department. This includes the removal of AR-15 Assault Rifles and similar combat weapons; as well as training the police to do their job with minimum use of force.
We welcome everyone and anyone who has a heart and cares about their community, family, and friends. We do not want this injustice to happen to anyone else. "Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action." -1 John 3:18
- We will be meeting on the sidewalk, and we ask that you park your car on the street or in the shopping center to the left of 7-11- not in the St. Edwards Church or KFC Parking Lots.
- We will update you with details as we receive them
