In the morning, we held a press conference with our partners the National Urban League, the NAACP Baton Rouge, ACLU of Louisiana, and ADL South Central.
We demanded the immediate termination and arrest of every state trooper involved in the 2019 fatal assault of Ronald Greene.
Speakers at the news conference included:
- National Urban League President Marc H. Morial
- Ronald Green’s mother, Mona Hardin
- Family attorney Lee Merritt
- Family attorney Ron Haley
- Urban League of Louisiana President & CEO Judy Reese Morse
- NAACP Baton Rouge President Eugene Weatherspoon Collins

JUSTICE FOR RONALD GREENE PETITION LAUNCHED
We, and those who sign this petition call for:
- All troopers involved to be immediately terminated. There has been limited discipline against some of the troopers but it is not enough. Every day that any trooper involved in this horrendous incident remains on the job is an injustice to the family and to all residents of Louisiana. All troopers involved must be terminated.
- All troopers to be arrested on charges that are appropriate for the crimes committed. There have been no charges thus far, after two years since Mr. Greene’s murder. The officers involved, named and unnamed, must be arrested immediately.

“It is time for us to act. The organizations that fight for civil rights in Louisiana are standing together. We are together and we are not going to be separated. When you see one of us, you see all of us. We are going to work together.” – Judy Reese Morse, Urban League of Louisiana, President and CEO
