In the week of Memorial Day, at least 23 people were killed by law enforcement nationally in 15 states.
Since the last New York Stolen Lives Induction Ceremony in July 2006, police in New York and New Jersey have killed at least 70 more.

Take part in the moving ceremony that honors the lives and families of people killed by law enforcement. The Stolen Lives Induction Ceremony is a solemn yet empowering event, where families and other loved ones of recent victims of police violence are joined and supported by other families of Stolen Lives and many others from all sections of the community. We come together to uphold the memories of those killed, and to affirm our resolve to continue and to escalate the struggle for justice and against the epidemic of police violence and murder.
