NAPABA has received inquiries about donating funds to support the family of slain NYPD Detective Wenjian Liu, who has been reported to be the first Chinese-American NYPD officer killed in the line of duty. Detective Liu and his partner, Detective Rafael Ramos, were shot to death on December 20, 2014, while sitting in their squad car in Brooklyn.
After reaching out to APA-serving organizations, NAPABA recommends the following funds to its members:
The NYPD Asian Jade Society has established a fund to support Detective Liu’s family. Detective Liu was a member of this organization for Asian Americans members of the NYPD. Donations can be made by checks payable to “PO Wen Jian Liu Family c/o NYPD Asian Jade Society” and mailed to NYPD Asian Jade Society, P.O. Box 969, Peck Slip Station, New York, NY 10272.
The New York Daily News has established the Ramos-Liu Fund. All funds will be directed to the slain officers’ families. More information is available here: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/donations-ramos-liu-fund-climbed-384-349-article-1.2065893.
