March 22nd marks the 4 month anniversary of the day 12 year old Tamir Rice was shot by Cleveland Police in 0.792 of a second. The city of Cleveland has recently blamed Tamir for his own death. Let's continue to demand #Justice4Tamir and stand in solidarity. His death will not be in vain.

The Millennial Mile March is about the youth because anyone between the ages of 12-19 could have have been Tamir, or Mike Brown, or Cameron Tillman or Tony Robinson, or:....and the list goes on. This march is a time for youth to share their views on police-community relations and will also be a call for local police officers to engage in a (future) youth-driven summit where a dialogue about subjects such as community policing occur.

While this march is about millennial youth rising, people of all ages are WELCOME and encouraged to join and participate in this peaceful action that will start at the Indiana War memorial. It will last roughly an hour and a half. 

When attending the march please bring a new or gently used toy (none that depict or promote violence please) or book. Bringing these items has two purposes: it's symbolic of the fact that Tamir was indeed a child who lost his life tragically and they will be donated to as an In-Kind donation to the Children's Bureau. 

*If you are a youth between the ages of 12-19 please take a few minutes to complete this short survey about youth perceptions of police relations. If you are older than 19, please pass it on: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1KJrRWe7J7LHyD0-sUweUu-898chG_335dAJb5tj6e6s/viewform?usp=send_form
