3/20 Coalition To Honor Anniversary Of Osagie’s Death Through ‘Days Of Action’

State College’s 3/20 Coalition, a local advocacy group, will 10 “days of action” from Friday, March 12, through Sunday, March 21, to honor the two-year anniversary of Osaze Osagie’s death.

The action items include a mix of in-person and online community and political education workshops. All of these events will be posted on the 3/20 Coalition’s social media pages with locations and links on how to participate.

The 3/20 Coalition will peacefully protest the death of Osagie at 5 p.m. Friday, March 19, at the Allen Street Gates. The following day, community events will be held to “reclaim” what March 20 has become throughout State College from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Osagie was fatally shot in his own home by a State College police officer performing a mental health check in March 2019. The names of the three officers involved in his death were released by the borough in early January following pressure from the 3/20 Coalition and a lawsuit filed by the Osagie family. No officers have been charged.
