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.
