Help pay for the funeral expenses of Abdirahman Abdi

On Sunday July 24, two policemen beat Abdirahman Abdi to death. Nimao Ali recorded the incident. As she said  "I had my six-year-old when I was recording and it broke my heart. I had to cover his eyes with one hand while I recorded, and I'm thinking, 'OK, what's going to happen to him when he grows up?' So it is a fear and it is something that needs to be addressed and it's something we need to speak out about."
