BLACK LIVES MATTER
The continuing epidemic of police killing people of color is evidence that we still have a long way to go in convincing our neighbors that BLACK LIVES MATTER. As we stand up for people of color, one action that we need to take is to try and stop the killings from happening in the first place.
Start local, start right now!
Google the address, email address, or a nonemergency phone number for your local police station. Ask the chief of police – or whoever answers the phone – to tell you specifically what they are doing to impress upon their force that Black Lives Matter. Hold them accountable in their policing. Ask what they’re doing to implement diversity and sensitivity training with their officers. If they tell you they already have a plan in place, ask them what it is. Then make sure to ask them to share that plan with neighboring towns.
Follow it up by contacting the mayor of your city or town. Find out how to contact them via phone, email, or even Twitter. And if you’re in the mood for a good letter writing campaign, you can take part in the snail mail phenomenon!
