[PHOTOS] One Year Later: A Celebration Of Dontre Hamilton’s Life

| Resist!

Milwaukee, WI – One year ago this past Thursday 14 shots forever changed Dontre Hamilton’s family and the city of Milwaukee. Much has happened since those fatal shots left Milwaukee police officer Christopher Manney’s gun. Since that day in April the Coalition for Justice has worked hard to highlight the injustices of a system that allows officers like Manney to go free. Though some progress has been made, on Thursday the Hamilton family made clear that much remains to be done.

How many more mothers must face what Maria Hamilton has endured? Mothers for Justice is organizing a Mother’s Day action in Washington DC. Please join if you can, or donate for the trip here.

All photos (unless denoted) were taken by Joe Brusky of Overpass Light Brigade. Click here to view more photos from the day.
