Call AG Phil Weiser to demand Justice for Elijah McClain
**UPDATE: A grand jury will review the murder of Elijah McClain.
It's been 16 months since Elijah was murdered and we've seen no justice. We're not backing down now. We must continue to call on AG Phil Weiser to demand that the officers who murdered Elijah are held accountable.
See below for more details on Elijah's case.
Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man in Aurora, Colorado, was murdered at the hands of police almost a year ago and still no justice.
On August 24, 2019, three white police officers stopped Elijah while he was walking home from a convenience store -- after a 911 caller reportedly described Elijah as a “suspicious person.” The details that led to Elijah’s death are horrific. The officers can be heard on bodycam video threatening to bring their dog to bite Elijah and even accusing Elijah of provoking arrest. Minutes later, officers then put Elijah in a deadly chokehold, causing him to go unconscious. Paramedics rushed to the scene only for Elijah to later suffer from a heart attack; he was declared brain dead three days later.
That’s why we must call on AG Phil Weiser to stand up for what is right and file criminal charges against the officers who murdered Elijah McClain. He has the power to ensure these officers are not free to roam the streets while Elijah's family is forced to mourn the loss of their loved one.
Elijah Mcclain should still be alive today. Make a call at +1 844-276-7927 to demand AG Phil Weiser charge the officers who murdered Elijah.
