In 2006, Officer Kaliah Harper was killed tragically leaving her family, fellow officers, and the community devastated. She left behind a legacy of dedication to the community of Richmond, CA. Her family did not want her dedication to the community to go in vain, hence Kaliah’s Heart was founded in 2018 by Kaliah's sister Kadija Phillips. Kadija has always been encouraged by her sister and wants the Heart of Kaliah to live forever. Kaliah will live through this organization as well as the K. Angel children's books. Proceeds from K. Angel books are donated to Kaliah's Heart to continue with the mission of creating solidarity between law enforcement and the community.
