Dear President Obama: What Happens After Ferguson?


8.25.2014

The Honorable Barack Obama
President
United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA:

In cities across America, local law enforcement units too often treat low-income neighborhoods populated by African Americans and Latinos as if they are military combat zones instead of communities where people strive to live, learn, work, play and pray in peace and harmony. Youth of color, black boys and men especially, who should be growing up in supportive, affirming environments are instead presumed to be criminals and relentlessly subjected to aggressive police tactics that result in unnecessary fear, arrests, injuries, and deaths.

Read the letter here.

Add you name to the petition urging President Obama to act now!
