"Family members of Jacob Blake in the Puget Sound region voiced their anger, fear, and hope today in Seattle.

Nicki Blake Chafetz is the aunt of Jacob Blake, who was shot this week by police officer Rusten Sheskey in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Chafetz lives in Auburn, Wash.

She spoke out against continuing police brutality at a rally in front of Seattle City Hall.
“We told them to stop after Trayvon. We told them to stop after Sandra Bland. We told them to stop after Philando Castile. We especially told them to stop after George Floyd,” Chafetz said. “Now, after the attempted execution of my nephew, we are telling them to stop again. We need people to listen and figure out how to solve this problem.”

Chafetz said one solution is to defund the police and use the money to support communities and prevent crime instead.

Chafetz wants people in the Puget Sound region to show up to every protest there is in her nephew’s name, and said she’s calling for peaceful participation."
