[Photo Story] Osaze Osagie Day Of Remembrance Memorial
Four years ago, State College resident Osaze Osagie was fatally shot by State College police responding to a mental health check. The 3/20 Coalition was formed in response and is “committed to working collectively toward social and racial justice in the State College community.”
The 3/20 Coalition held a memorial event on Monday, March 20, to remember Osagie and continue the fight for justice.
Members of the coalition and the State College community gathered at the MLK Plaza for the occasion.
Attendees lit candles in memoriam.
Many speakers gathered to remember Osagie.
A purple sign on stage read, “We miss you, Osaze.” A Black Lives Matter sign was displayed next to it.
Earlier this month, State College Mayor Ezra Nanes declared Monday the Osaze Osagie Day of Remembrance in a proclamation.
