Media Advisory

Not This Time will host a conversation on Race and Policing at its weekly meeting. The discussion will be moderated by Andre’ Taylor, chair of Not This Time.
King County Sheriff Urquhart and the leadership of the Black Law Enforcement Association of Washington will be sharing their perspectives on the impact race has on the profession of law enforcement and how police culture must change. Sheriff Urquhart and the BLEAW have both endorsed De-Escalate Washington I-940, the state-wide initiative to reform police training and accountability.
Attending will be the family of Charleena Lyles, who was killed in Seattle on June 18 this year, Sonia Joseph, the mother of Giovonn Joseph-McDade who was killed in Kent on June 24 this year, Annalesa Thomas, the mother of Leonard Thomas who was killed in Fife in 2013, Marilyn Covarubbias, the mother of Daniel Covarubbias who was killed in Lakewood in 2015.

There have been twenty-three people killed by police in Washington State in 2017, with Matthew Folden, age 31 of Wenatchee the most recent death on July 27.

Let's get ready to march for #Justice4Giovonn!

"Shortly after midnight on Saturday June 24, a Kent police officer fatally shot a 20-year-old Green River College student named Giovonn Joseph-McDade."

"The shooting on June 24 is the third fatal police shooting in King County this month. On June 13, a King County Sheriff's deputy shot a 20-year-old Vietnamese American man carrying a pen that was thought to be a knife. Five days later, Seattle police officers shot and killed 30-year-old Charleena Lyles, a pregnant, black mother of four, after Lyles allegedly pulled a knife on the officers who responded to her 911 call for help."
