Description

The Cordale Quinn Handy In Remembrance of Me Foundation is hosting the 2nd Annual Remembering Cordale Handy Memorial Banquet, #BootsOnTheGround. The event is held in honor of mothers who have lost their loved ones, stolen by police brutality. Join the Handy-Jones family in an evening of honoring and celebrating life, strength, togetherness, happiness, and love.

This year’s Memorial Banquet promises to be a remarkable evening of beloved mothers honoring their beautiful children; a program filled with heartening speakers and phenomenal artists, dinner & dancing and the opportunity to put your “Boots on the Ground” to help four local Twin Cities families obtain headstones for their loved ones. Please join us in love and community, to uplift mothers, to let them know they are not alone, and to honor the memories of their children at this community gathering.

The Cordale Quinn Handy In Remembrance of Me Foundation was founded in 2018 by Cordale’s mother, Kimberly Handy-Jones, in remembrance of her precious son. On March 15, 2017, the life of Cordale Handy, a son, brother, and uncle was cut short when he was shot and killed by two St. Paul police officers. He was only 29 years old. Since that time, Cordale’s mother, Kimberly Handy-Jones, has been on a crusade to call out the injustices connected to her son’s death and the urgent need to end police violence. The foundation provides memorials for families who need assistance with burials for their children. During its first year, the foundation has donated three headstones and continues to help families in need.
