REMEMBERING MILES!

Join us for this live, ON LINE TRIBUTE to honor Miles Hall's life and legacy on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, at 5pm PST. We are honored to have special guests Dave Clark of KTVU-2, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Rev. Dr. Fred Weidmann, Sr. Pastor of Hillcrest Congregational Church, Bishop Dave Hollister, formerly of the chart-topping R&B group Blackstreet, musical tributes by award-winning artists Daniel Luca Parenti, Ms. Misa Malone, acclaimed poet Benjamin Turner, and a host of other inspiring speakers and guests all brought together to honor Miles Hall, often referred to as "Smiles"!

June 2nd marks exactly one year since Miles was shot and killed by Walnut Creek, CA police when he was at his most vulnerable point in the throes of a mental health crisis. Miles' death will not have been in vain!

Mental illness is a medical condition that deserves the appropriate medical response, public awareness, systemic protections and police reform.

The Friends of Scott, Alexis and Taun Hall (FOSATH) are relentlessly pursuing reforms in Miles' name to spare other precious lives, especially individuals living with mental illness.

Mark your calendars to tune in LIVE via webinar for this must-see event to pay tribute and share your message for Miles on June 2nd. Miles is loved and will always be remembered. Say his name! MILES HALL!!
