Statement of the NAACP Milwaukee Branch

May 21, 2020

“A man with outward courage dares to die, a man with inner courage dares to live”

Lao Tzu

 

It is with a saddened heart that we learned of the passing of Attorney Jonathan Safran. The NAACP Milwaukee Branch knew him as a friend and a relentless advocate for justice and civil rights. I had the opportunity to work with Jonathan on police accountability issues over the past ten years. He was well seasoned in this area long before I had the pleasure of meeting and learning from him. I knew him as an individual who was not worried about what people felt about the position he stood for as long as he felt it was the right position to stand for. When it came to police accountability he was usually right.

The community of Milwaukee has lost a true champion for justice. His presence and capable advocacy on behalf of those who have been violated will be sorely missed.

Sincerely,

Fred Royal
