Our communities have the power to facilitate real change! #ChauvinTrial's verdict has set a precedent for achieving police accountability, but we must STILL be active participants in demanding police reform to CHANGE the culture of policing in America!
Ben Crump tells CBS Sunday Morning he gets more death threats than he would like
"I do believe there has to be some things that a man is worth dying for, and the future of our children, to me, is worth dying for."
Watch the full interview with @AttorneyCrump Sunday at 9a ET https://t.co/7RYORVzjzW
Black youth are 2x more likely to commit suicide than white counterparts. This is due to a mental health stigma in communities of color + exposure to systemic racism in schools & elsewhere. We need mental health resources more accessible to Black youth! https://t.co/MEN9P8Cmi6
Christian Hall needed help with a mental health emergency, yet @PAStatePolice shot him MULTIPLE TIMES even though he had his hands raised in the air... His family deserves answers! We demand police release the full 90min dashcam footage NOW! https://t.co/rLPJEC3B5w
Black mothers deserve the best medical care possible during delivery. Unfortunately, that’s not always what happens, like when @TatyanaAli's baby faced complications due to her doctor’s dismissive actions. We must demand justice for malpractice victims! https://t.co/bqmkNBSy5O
Pamela Turner’s life was cut short when Ofc. Juan Delacruz unjustifiably shot her in her own apartment complex. Delacruz used EXCESSIVE force by shooting Pam EIGHT times while she was on the ground on her BACK! Pamela’s life mattered! FIRE Ofc. Juan Delacruz!! https://t.co/1soqoBMVnd
Andrew Brown Jr. did NOT deserve to die! Bodycam footage shows he didn’t strike deputies with his vehicle OR even drive in their direction! NC deputies must be held accountable for unjustly ending Andrew’s life! https://t.co/l1EWc3zegg

MEDIA ALERT: @AttorneyCrump to join the families of Pamela Turner, George Floyd & Breonna Taylor at the “Justice for Pamela Turner” rally. The rally will be held tomorrow (5/13) on the second anniversary of Pamela Turner’s death at 12 PM CT. https://t.co/v5LggEjWD1
Clearly, Derek Chauvin abused a position of trust, treated George Floyd with particular cruelty, and committed the crime in the presence of children and with the active participation of at least three other people — the other officers still to be tried. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
Judge Cahill has ruled that 4 of 5 aggravating factors were proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, which could allow for a longer sentence for Derek Chauvin. This case offers hope we’ll see real change between police & POC by holding officers accountable for egregious behavior.
A predominately white curriculum DOESN’T serve Black & low-income students in gifted programs. As with our @IntegrateNYC lawsuit, we will continue to fight for CHANGE in NYC's school system! https://t.co/WpE8pqngOM
Join me at tomorrow's #JusticeForPamelaTurner rally! We must demand Ofc. Juan Delacruz be fired for unjustly shooting Pamela Turner THREE times while she lay helplessly on her back! He needs to be held accountable for her horrific death! https://t.co/Bl0ohwrlV6

Today, Andrew Brown Jr’s family saw some of the bodycam footage from his death by cop! They say Andrew’s hands were visible the whole time. He posed NO threat to cops & moved his car AWAY from officers. We must demand JUSTICE for this UNJUSTIFIABLE killing!https://t.co/ebC3gFywHm
