Justice For Regis Ottawa

Regis Korchinski-Paquet, an Afro-Indigenous woman died on May 27 when police were called to her Toronto apartment.  Although The Toronto Police  are claiming she died by suicide, her family has contested their relative would not commit suicide and said the police were responsible for her death .
“I asked the police if they could take my daughter to CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), and my daughter ended up dead,” said  Claudette Korchinski​​​​​​-Beals.

Far too often, when police are called to help Black people, they are killed in the process. When police are called to help Indigenous people, they are killed in the process.  #NotAnotherBlackLife #NotAnotherIndigenousLife

Following in the footsteps of Toronto Protester Bail Fund , we are looking to take extra precaution and generate funding to release to those who end up incarcerated and/or fined by being present at our vigil.

Although this is a peaceful vigil, our political climate is unpredictable; we don't what could happen at our vigil.  For this reason, we want to ensure we have the funds in place to help.
If no arrests or fines occur, we will donate all funds to Regis Korchinski Paquet.
