Jay-Z and Team Roc, the social justice arm of his Roc Nation entertainment company, are organizing a rally in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin on Thursday (Oct. 15) to demand justice for 17-year-old Alvin Cole.
Cole was killed on Feb. 2 by Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah, less than three minutes after police began to chase him through the parking lot of Mayfair mall.
The rally is set to take place at 2:30 p.m. CT on Oct. 15 in Hart Park at 7300 Chestnut Street. Face masks are required to attend.
Cole’s family, State Rep. David Bowen, and members of Until Freedom will all participate in the rally, and call for Mensah to be terminated for his actions, and Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber be fired. The rally will additionally demand for the Wauwatosa Police Department to require body cameras.
