The 12th of Every Month: Monthly Keaton Otis Vigils 2021

UPDATE: We will host the monthly vigils online until it is safe to meet in person again. If you would like log-in information, please message this page or Justice For Keaton Otis here on Facebook.

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over six years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for “looking like a gangster”. They shot him 23 times after tazing him twice while he sat in the driver’s seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.

Keaton’s father Fred Bryant started the monthly vigil on the 12 of the month after his son’s murder on the spot where Keaton’s life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013.

His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community. Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word. https://justiceforkeatonotis.wordpress.com/
