News from the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund

Exciting news!

In our efforts to increase the visibility of the Rashawn Brazell case in a variety of arenas, the RBMF has focussed its creative energies upon a number of web-based projects. Take a look at what we've done!

  • We have created an entry about Rashawn in the Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. This popular reference tool will allow users all over the world to learn more about Rashawn and the RBMF.

  • We've started a blog in Rashawn's name that will keep the public abreast of developments in the investigation as well as local and national stories and events that pertain to the intersection of racial and sexual identities. Check it out at

  • We've also launched a RBMF page on, a popular social networking hub. This page that will keep friends of the Fund abreast of all developments and allow for more informal interaction with the RBMF staff . Visit to add the Fund as a friend and to sign up to receive our email newsletter today!

How's that for creative web-savvy organizing?

Major Kudos to you Larry for all the magnificent work that you have done and continue to do on behalf of the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund. You refuse to let his memory die and it is through your tireless efforts and the efforts of other beautiful brothers like yourself that his memory will continue to live on.
