Vigil in Memory of Aura Rain Rosser

Thu, Nov 9, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

City:

Aura Rain Rosser was an artist and a mother of three, murdered by AAPD officer David Ried on November 10, 2014. Three years have passed and Ann Arbor has failed to acknowledge the value of her life, let alone attempt justice for her death. We are gathering to say, for the third year, Aura Rosser matters and Black Lives Matter. We will gather at 6PM at the Justice Center to remember Aura in silence, to say her name, and to hold a speak out for Black people to speak about what Aura and/or the Black Lives Matter movement has meant for them.

On Tuesday, September 26, 16-year-old Ann Arbor resident Ciaeem Slaton was violently restrained (pinned to the ground, with the officer kneeling on his neck and back while pulling out his taser) by AAPD's Officer Marrow at the Blake Transit Center and given a "trespass" which stops him from riding the bus for one year. All of this because he wasn't carrying ID. The bus is Ciaeem's way to school and other activities.
