"Hoops for Justice” was founded in July 2013 in remembrance of Shantel Davis & Kimani Gray, young lives that were taken by NYPD. Dozens of young men and their supporters will assemble to compete in a basketball tournament unlike any other in the neighborhood this summer. They compete not only for prizes and prestige but also to stand for a positive vision of their community. This tournament was brought together by tragedy and now we want to bring the community together in celebration of Shantel & Kimani’s life. It is time to bring the residents of East Flatbush together to stand united against police brutality. This tournament is dedicated to the young people of East Flatbush and to all families who have lost a loved one to police brutality. 

Help us raise $3,500 to put this tournament on.  Your donations will help pay for basketball shirts,  the equipment,  the park and sound permits,  food, the referees,  the DJ and the trophies. Thank you for helping to honor my sister, Shantel and Kimani 's memory. Your support is greatly appreciated . Donations will be matched by the Len Ragozin Foundation.

Natasha Duncan, sister of Shantel Davis
