Today’s Action: Justice for Manuel Ellis

Manuel Ellis, a 33-year-old Black man, was killed by law enforcement in Tacoma, WA on March 3. He was heard by police dispatch saying the words, “I can’t breathe,” while under physical restraint. For months, officials dismissed his death as coming from “excited delirium” and a witness has disputed their version of events. But six days ago, medical examiners finally ruled Manuel’s death as homicide.

Manuel’s death holds ties to George Floyd’s, whose story sparked the nationwide protests against police brutality toward Black people. But though Manuel’s killers were placed on leave, they were returned to work quickly. They have since been placed on leave again as the story has gained national attention, but have not been arrested or charged. And now, in the face of conflicting information and conflicts of interests, Manuel’s family is calling for an independent investigation.

Support Manuel Ellis’ family in calling for an independent investigation of his murder, separate from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, by contacting Washington State Governor Jay Inslee. Consider supporting the GoFundMe to cover his family’s legal fees.

The Black lives lost to police brutality are each unique. But the patterns and policies that allow law enforcement violence against Black people to go on unchecked, the repeated lies and cover-ups that protect cops are nearly identical state to state, city to city. Until the oppressive systems that reject accountability and perpetuate murder have been eradicated, we must fight for justice on each individual case, every single time.

Take action today for Manuel, and for all Black Americans.

Call for an independent investigation into Manuel Ellis’ murder at the hands of law enforcement, separate from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, by contacting Washington State Governor Jay Inslee. If you can, chip in to help the Ellis family cover legal fees.
