Marshall Zamor died on March 29 in NJ State Police custody. BLM-NJ (Black Lives Matter) is supporting the Zamor family as they seek answers from the police and the attorney general, who have refused to release video of the arrest or the holding cell.
Black Lives Matter is asking allies to submit OPRA (Open Public Records Access) requests to the attorney general asking for release of information. Please take 5 minutes to add your information to this template (also below), print it and mail it. A recent article about the case can be found here. Share the link and the call to action–no need to be a NJ resident to mail a request.
