Daniel K. Harris was unexpectedly killed in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday, August 18, 2016. He was unarmed when shot and killed by a state trooper. His tragic death could have been prevented. Police brutality ends NOW.
Our family is raising funds to cover his memorial and cremation expenses (details below). Any monies left over will be used to set up a foundation in his name to educate and provide law enforcement proper training on how to confront Deaf people. Subsequently, we hope to change the DMV registration system by requiring states to set up a "DEAF" alert to appear when law enforcement look up a car's license plate. With this change, Daniel will be a hero in our Deaf community.
Tribute Cremation Society of Charlotte and the Harris family are handling wake and memorial arrangements. The viewing will be on Tuesday from 5 to 6 PM at First Baptist Church on 301 S Davidson Street in Charlotte, NC 28202 with a memorial service to follow from 6 to 7:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to the YouCaring page to set up a foundation in Daniel’s name to educate and provide law enforcement proper training on how to confront Deaf people: http://www.youcaring.com/danielkharris
