Terence Crutcher Foundation to host events on 6th Anniversay

TULSA, Okla.  — The Terence Crutcher Foundation has announced the full schedule for its upcoming commemoration of the 6th anniversary of Terence Crutcher’s killing by a Tulsa Police Officer. This series of events will be for and by the community and are intended to continue to build community power to affect true change within the city of Tulsa and across the nation.

The Crutcher family and Terence Crutcher Foundation keep Terence Crutcher’s name and legacy alive by sustaining a movement to build community power that stemmed from outrage over the unarmed father’s tragic killing in Tulsa in September of 2016.

Events include a fireside chat with the family of George Floyd and National Civil Rights Attorney Ben Crump, a Day of Service featuring voter engagement and registration, a historical marker dedication, and more.
