Justice For Jordan Peaceful Protest
July 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Justice for Jordan Stevens! Cocopah Tribal Member Jordan Stevens was in the process of being released from the Yuma County Adult Detention Center in 2017 when he was heinously assaulted, and killed by numerous correctional officers. His death was ruled as a homicide yet no correctional officers have been arrested or have been held accountable for their actions of excessive force. We will be gathering to protest against the Yuma County Adult Detention Center to display our stance against police brutality and excessive force.
We will be on the corner of 16th Street and 4th Ave from 6:30-8:30 or longer. Bring your signs, LED candles, glow sticks, battery operated twinkle lights to attach to your signs as we will be staying til it gets dark. We want the Yuma community to know that we have not given up and we are still seeking answers for Jordan’s wrongful death. Please come and take a stance and fight for answers, justice, and for Jordan!
