#FireNYPD for Kawaski Trawick
On April 14, 2019, Mr. Trawick locked himself out of his apartment while he was cooking. The super at the assisted living facility where Mr. Trawick lived refused to let him back in so Mr. Trawick called 911 for the fire department. Fire department arrived and let Mr. Trawick back into his apartment. Mr. Trawick was cooking in his home after the situation had been resolved and they illegally entered Mr. Trawicks apartment and murdered him in 112 seconds.

Join the movement to #DefundNYPD!
We are calling on Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Corey Johnson, and the New York City Council to defund and demilitarize the NYPD's bloated, almost $6 billion expense budget and redirect that money and all related savings to services, programs, and infrastructure for Black, Latinx and other communities of color.
Fill out a membership form to get involved or contact London@justicecommittee.org for more information.
