 On February 2, 2012, Ramarley Graham was shot and killed in his home by an NYPD officer. He was just 18 years old when officers chased him into his home and one office shot him in the chest in his bathroom. The indictment of Officer Haste was dismissed by the Supreme Court because of a technicality. 

The story of Ramarley Graham is one of the many stories of young people of color who have been harrassed, brutalized, and murdered by the NYPD. As LGBTQ Youth of Color we understand the importance of knowing your rights and fighting for justice for our community.
