Vigil Rally for Akiel Denkins
Akiel Denkins was shot dead by a Raleigh police officer on February 29, 2015. Raleigh based coalition called PACT (Police Accountability Community Taskforce) was launched in the aftermath of this murder to demand accountability to community, equity and transparency in Raleigh policing. A rally will be organized in Raleigh on Saturday, April 23, titled Vigil for Justice in policing. This rally take place at the steps of Wake County Justice Center at 4:30pm.
THE RALEIGH POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY COMMUNITY TASK FORCE (PACT)
is a coalition of community-based groups, community leaders, and non-profit organizations committed to human rights. We came together in April 2015 because we knew either from personal experience or were seeing in our backyard the need for local policies that create accountability to community, equity, and transparency in Raleigh policing. We’re working together to end racial profiling, selective enforcement, excessive force and harassment by police.
