#YearWithoutTamir Action in Eugene

Why:

To call for justice for Tamir Rice by calling on Prosecutor McGinty to step aside.

Because charges must be brought against the officer who killed a 12 year old child and the prosecutor is siding with police and not doing his job, even though a judge found probably cause for murder charges.

When:
This Sunday, November 22, 2015 
11:45am Park and meet up for staging
12pm - be in position and set up with signs
12:30pm - hold a minute of silence for Tamir
Remain in the area engaging park visitors for another 1/2 hour
Where:
RiverPlay Discovery Village Playground by Skinner Butte Park
210 Cheshire Ave. 
Eugene, OR 97402 
What:
We'll hold signs, engage in discussion on the systemic racism that led to this tragedy and call in onlookers to call 1-216-600-1207 to ask prosecutor McGinty to step down or bring charges.
We'll have materials for adults to write a letter to the county office and for kids to make cards for the Rice family. 
 
We'll also have some resources for families on talking about race with their children.
Please join this family oriented event calling for justice in this tragic case. The weather should be mild but we will be there rain or shine.
