Justice For Justin
August 19th 2020
Spruce Tree Center
Start: 1600 University Ave W, Saint Paul, MN 55104
Hamline Park: 1564 Lafond Ave, St Paul, MN 55104
August 19th will mark 11 years since the St. Paul Police murdered Justin Teigen by beating him and throwing his body in a trash dumpster. Since then our family has been traumatized and targeted by the St. Paul police. We deserve answers and most of all justice!! The family would really appreciate it if you could join us, even if you didn’t know him or the family personally! This is our time to be heard!! #BLM #JusticeforJustin
Please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
[4pm People gather]
We will be playing some of Justin’s favorite tunes.
[430pm Press Conference] – Statements by the Family
[455pm Immediate Action] – “Get out your phones!” Call or email Governor Waltz for another special session to end the statute of limitations and call or email Keith Ellison to take Mike Freeman off all problematic police brutality cases.
[5pm March] – We will be gathering at the plaza in front of the Spruce Tree Building (weird green building) which is where Toshira and Justin met and where the MN POST Board (the licensing agency for cops) office is now. From there, we will march by the scene where Justin was last seen alive. We’ll share a moment of silence & prayer, then continue the march to the Western District Police Station. After that, we will convene at Hamline park where Justin and his son played basketball together, to share food and fellowship.
[7pm Arrive at the Park] – Closing speakers and announcements
[730pm Party at the Park] – Local artists doing their thing so we can be loud for justice while we share a meal and celebrate Justin’s life!
[930pm Official cleanup] – you don’t have to go home but the official event will be ending.
