Although I missed the highlights, I am told that last night’s vigil for Rahmarley was powerful, peaceful, and inspirational!

We’re trying to get 40 folks from our organization to join the last vigil (see info below) — please, please, please come out next Thursday for the last vigil.  Even if you can only spare an hour or half an hour of your time.   Rahmarley’s family would appreciate the support and our numbers — it would mean the world to them.

Yesterday, Lucy Hershel, a paralegal in Queens CDD came and spoke passionately about our work and our commitment to real justice!  Mani Tafari, an attorney in PRDU also spoke at the Rahmarley’s house and I’m told “He was ON FIRE” and “It was awesome”!  There were @ 6 LASers there last night – please organize some folks in your office to come next Thursday.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thursday, July 19th from 5pm – 9:30/10pm @ 749 E 229th Street, take the 2 train to 225th St

Walk up White Plains Rd and take a right on 229th (you’ll see the home from the corner).

There is a march to the police precinct that usually starts @ 7:00 p.m. and the vigil concludes with speakers and a rally in front of the precinct.
