Justice for Rashawn: SATURDAY

Rashawn Brazell Memorial March - April 15, 2006
From Nostrand Avenue Station stop (at Fulton and Nostrand)
To the 79th Precinct (263 Tompkins Avenue Brooklyn)


When the NYPD investigated the murders of Immette St. Guillen and Nicole DuFresne, they left no stone unturned. Each case was afforded an appropriate amount of resources from the department. Desire Brazell has one simple question: Why should the investigation of her son's murder be treated any differently?

On Saturday, April 15, Desire will demand an answer from the NYPD's 79th precinct.

The Rashawn Brazell Memorial March will begin at the Nostrand Avenue station stop at 12pm. The procession to the 79th precinct station house will begin at 1pm. There, Mrs. Brazell, along with invited guests, will demand that the police devote the maximum amount of resources available to the year-old investigation her son's murder.

Scheduled Speakers:
Eric Adams, 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care
Letitia James, Council Member – District 35
Hameed (Herukhuti) S. Williams, Ph.D., M.Ed.

and later that night...
