Katrina Johnson is the cousin of Charleena Lyles, who was killed in 2017 during an encounter with police in her apartment.
She talks with Dave Ross about the ongoing protests in Seattle, including a vigil for Charleena and other victims of police brutality that Johnson organized in Magnuson Park, an event hundreds attended. With a background working with police officers in Seattle's Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program and fighting for justice for her cousin through the inquest process, Johnson demands accountability from the Seattle Police Department and city leadership.
Johnson is organizing a March for Accountability at Magnuson Park this Sunday, June 28th: more information about how to participate here.
