On what would have been Kayla Moore’s 42nd birthday, family members and the community at large celebrated her life and marched peacefully to the Berkeley police station Wednesday evening.

Approximately 70 individuals attended the event to remember Moore, a 41-year-old transgender Berkeley resident and a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic who died in the custody of Berkeley Police Department on Feb. 12 after a disturbance call.

The memorial and protest began in the Gaia Building, where Moore lived, and featured an extensive cast of speakers, including friends, family, a City Council member and other community members.
