Black Lives Matter Phoenix Metro – Justice for Dion & Dalvin

July 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us Monday, July 27 at Tempe Beach Park, 5pm, to demand #JusticeForDionJohnson and #JusticeForDalvinHollins. This is not a family-friendly event and you must be 16 or older. Masks required.
Dion Johnson was murdered May 25, 2020 by Arizona DPS Trooper George Cervantes. Dion’s birthday is July 28, 2020. He should be turning 29. We demand the release of all the other officers’ names who watched Cervantes fatally assault Dion.
Dalvin Hollins was murdered July 27, 2016 by Tempe Police Lt. Edward Ouimette. The case is in final stages in federal courts. Ouimette did not receive qualified immunity (a legal doctrine that shields government employees from being held personally liable for excessive force).
DEMANDS
1. Immediately terminate of officers in violation of U.S.C. § 1983 and A.R.S. § 12-612 with no ability to rehire in any jurisdiction.
2. End officer qualified immunity.
3. Terminate all officers that are accomplices to wrongful death or use of force violations.
4. Do not dispatch police officers for mental health or substance abuse calls.
We are the voice of those who’s voice was taken too soon. We are the breath of those who can no longer breathe. We are the change that we have foreseen.
Hosted by Tempe Against Police Violence, Black Lives Matter PHX Metro, Young Democratic Socialists of America, and Direct Action Arizona.
