Join Berkeley Copwatch as we #sayhername. Kayla Moore was an African American trans woman who was killed by the Berkeley police in February 2013. As you may already know, Judge Breyer ruled in favor of the City of Berkeley and dismissed the case brought by Kayla's family. This is outrageous, but the family has decided to appeal. The case is strong, but they only win if we give up; we will not give up our fight for justice.
