Vigil in Remembrance of Kalief’s passing

June 6, 2020 @ 11:00 am

Many of you will know of Kalief Browder, who was unjustly incarcerated at the Rikers Island jail complex, without trial, for allegedly stealing a backpack, between 2010 and 2013 when he was unable to make bail; he was in solitary confinement for two of these years, and commit suicide shortly following his release on the dropped charges. Following a celebration of what would have been Kalief’s 27th birthday on Tuesday, May 26, there are two more events as part of a three event series in recognition of the five year anniversary of Kalief’s passing. We are joining to support and partner with Akeem Browder and the Kalief Browder Foundation and hope you can join as well:
