Jan 31: Police accountability rally

One year ago, Port Authority police took the life of Bruce Kelley Jr.  The Distirct attorney ruled it justified.  Port Authority of Allegheny County placed the officers back on duty with zero accountability!

Join a gathering in Wilkinsburg at the Gazebo on Wood Street in  support the family of Bruce Kelley Jr. as they remember his life and continue to fight for justice.  As we know, by watching Jordan Miles' case just end after six years, this can be a long process.  Let's give them our support on thier journey for justice and brave the weather to retrace his last steps with them.

APA, along with many other groups and activist are committed to seeking justice for Bruce Kelley Jr. and will be relaunching our campaign to end the use of police dogs to attack people, demand adequate disability-led training and systems for police interacting with people with disabilities, and inclusive hiring practices and promotions based on officers being community minded and culturally familiar opposed to the number of arrests made.  We demand transparency and an accountability system that the people can trust!
6 p.m. at the Gazebo in Wilkinsburg (619 Wood Street Pgh, PA  15221)
There will be song, and poetry, and love on his family.
