BALDWIN, La. — The family of Quawan Charles and the Stand Black organization have announced a protest on Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Baldwin Police Department.

According to a release from Stand Black, the event is being held to protest against the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Baldwin Police Department due to what the organizations calls an "obvious mishandling of the situation."

Charles, 15, was found dead in an unidentified wooded area
off Ed Broussard Road in Loreauville on Nov. 3.

No arrests have been made, and neither the coroner nor the police have released any information to the family, the release states.

"These agencies need to be held accountable and their lack of transparency is unacceptable," the release states.

The protest will be held Saturday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. at the Baldwin Police Department, located at 16125 LA-182, in Baldwin.
