Families Impacted by Police Violence Stand Together in their Fight for Justice

Seattle, WA - Not This Time will hold a press conference to provide updates on the impact of police violence on families and the efforts of these families to provide support to one another. These families are brought together at the toughest time, by the worst circumstances. The families have endorsed Initiative 940, and will be joined by others from the De-Escalate Washington Campaign.

Families in attendance include the family of Eugene Nelson, killed in Kent on August 9, the family of Hussein Hassan, killed in Kennewick on August 13, the family of Charlena Lyles, killed in Seattle on June 18, the family of Giovonn Joseph-McDade who was killed in Kent on June 24, and the family of Daniel Covarubbias killed in Lakewood in 2015. Andre Taylor’s brother Che’ Taylor was killed by Seattle police in 2016. Attorney James Bible will be in attendance as well as Sarah Stuteville, the outreach director for CAIR-W (Council on American Islamic Relations – Washington Chapter).

There have been twenty-eight people killed by police in Washington State in 2017. According to a database maintained by Killedbypolice.net, there were 29 people killed by police in Washington State in 2016. It is apparent that we will be surpassing that number this year. This fact alone should bring us all to the table to talk and work to change the culture of policing. The message we are delivering is that we all have a role in this work, and we need to come together. The support of Seahawk Defensive End Michael Bennett has brought much needed attention to the families. The families stand with Michael Bennett, who faced racial profiling himself at the hands of Las Vegas police last week. Race is a factor in policing and we must face this and work to eliminate racism in our institutions and communities.

The public is encouraged to attend to meet these families and learn how to support them in their efforts for justice.

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."
