Justice for Joseph
Wednesday, October 5 • 6:30 – 8:30 pm

Neil-Marshall Center Bridgwaters Lounge

This is an opportunity for everyone to come together for the anniversary of Joseph’s death. Bloomington may have thought we’ve moved on and forgotten, but it’s been quite the contrary. Lots of things have been moving and shaking behind the scenes and you better believe we will not stop until we have justice! It is imperative that we continue to keep his name on the lips of those surrounding IU as well as in your communities. We will be holding a Vigil and a silent walk as a way to show the rest of the University that Joseph is gone but not forgotten. Help us re-center Bloomington’s focus on getting #JusticeForJoseph!
