The Official Calvin L. Horton, Jr. Memorial Fund

On the evening of May 27, 2020, I received the most heartbreaking phone call of my life. My sister called to tell me that my father, Calvin L. Horton, Jr., was shot and killed by a white Minneapolis store owner, during the protest for George Floyd, Jr. The man who shot and killed my father was detained by police for several days, but they released him without charges as they claim to continue to investigate the shooting.  My father was a loving, caring, and god-fearing man, who leaves behind seven amazing children and his granddaughter whom he loved dearly. He also was looking forward to the birth of his newest granddaughter in August.  This fund is established to cover funeral and burial expenses, mental and grief counseling, lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and to assist our family in the days to come as we continue to seek justice for Calvin.  A portion of these funds will also go to the Estate of Calvin L. Horton, Jr. for the benefit, care and educational funds of his 7 children, especially my eight year old twin brothers Cavon and Calvon, my twelve year old sister ShaNyah, as well as my 17 year old brother, Cavin.
