April 15th At 12 Noon, Rashawn Brazell Memorial March

Please join me, other concerned citizens and members of the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund for this important event:

Rashawn Brazell Memorial March

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-Jones has one simple question: Why should the investigation of her son's murder be treated any differently?

On Saturday, April 15, the day that would have marked Rashawn Brazell's twenty-first birthday, Desire Brazell-Jones 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-Jones, along with invited guests, will demand that the police devote the maximum amount of resources available to the year-old investigation of 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.
