TORONTO, July 24, 2020 /CNW/ - Regis Korchinski-Paquet, a 29-year-old Black and Indigenous woman, died in the context of a police interaction near High Park on May 27, 2020. Like so many other Black and Indigenous peoples, including Chantel Moore and D'Andre Campbell in recent months, the police had been called to support her in a crisis and this resulted instead in her tragic death. Her family, community, and supporters are gathering for a memorial service, march, and performances, to demand justice, and an end to the constant deaths of Black and Indigenous community members at hands of police.
This is the 1st Annual Walk for Justice in Regis's name. The event is organized by the Korchinski-Paquet family, and the effort is supported by Black Lives Matter ? Toronto and Latinx, Afro-Latin-America, Abya Yala Education Network.
