Tell the Broward County Commission: We Need Accountability and Justice for Kevin Desir
The Broward County Commission has agreed to hear a request from Chainless Change, other partner organizations, and residents for transparency and accountability regarding Kevin Desir. Kevin Desir was killed in custody by Broward County Sheriff's Office deputies in 2021. The topic has been added to the agenda for the next commission meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, May 24 at 10 a.m. It is item #40.
Over a year has passed since Kevin Desir’s death. To date, no action has been taken against any of the officers involved, nor have any steps been taken to prevent another tragedy. We need to make our voices heard to ensure we get justice for Kevin Desir, his family, and others who are victims of police abuse and misconduct in Broward County.
