On August 24, 2019, Elijah was murdered by police in Aurora, Colorado after being stopped while walking home from the store. They claimed he resisted arrest after committing no crime. Elijah was a gentle young man who brought joy to his community. His death was a terrible injustice. Continuing this year of charity collaborations with artists, Track 16 and Julia Schwartz are donating 50% of the gross proceeds of this sale to the GoFundMe set up by Elijah’s mother.
