Today, Moses was finally found in Andover MA, in the Merrimack River.
The money raised by this fundraiser will go directly to Moses' mother to pay for his memorial service. Any remaining money will support the Harris family through this dark time as they continue to seek answers and justice for Moses. This fundraiser is a continuation of the Fundrazr that has been going since late December.
Since the disappearance of Moses, the Harris-Wahpo family has been seeking justice and answers from the LPD, from the Lowell City Council, and from Lori Trahan's office. They have been ignored, disrespected, and disregarded by the public officials with whom they have communicated.
There has been an outpouring of support from people all over. Hundreds of community members in Lowell have showed up week after week to march in the streets, to support Moses' family and to demand police accountability, and since December $4.7k has been raised to support the family.
The bottom line is this: The LPD had the opportunity to save Moses Harris and they didn't. They pull people out of the river all the time, without a problem. Their response was negligent the morning they disappeared Moses. If the police had made any genuine effort to rescue Moses, he may still be with his family. If the police had made any genuine effort to rescue Moses, a family wouldn't be grieving the loss of another young Black man taken too soon. He was only 25.
