On Friday, June 25, Tamir Rice would be turning 19. He would be blowing out candles on a cake and making a wish. Instead his mother Samaria Rice has only One Wish: Justice. Organizers and supporters in both Cleveland and Washington DC and around the world are rallying behind her and will hold demonstrations to amplify her call for the DOJ to reopen the case against Tamir’s killers.
Tamir’s Campaign for Justice is a solidarity campaign with Samaria Rice focused on obtaining justice for Tamir Rice, her 12-year-old son who was fatally shot by Cleveland police in 2014. We are volunteer organizers who struggle alongside those who have been victimized by state-sanctioned anti-Black violence in the United States, because #BlackLivesMatter and we need #JusticeforTamir to bring about a justice system that is true to its namesake —JUSTICE.
