We stand in solidarity with Black people everywhere who are rising up against yet another police murder, and who are experiencing the pain of yet more state violence. We mourn Tony McDade in Florida, Breonna Taylor in Kentucky, George Floyd in Minnesota, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia, as well as countless others. As Law for Black Lives said, “These deaths are a painful reminder of this country’s failure to address its history of institutional racism and the pervasiveness of anti-blackness.”
At the People’s Parity Project, we recognize the connection between the legal system and structural violence, including the systematic police violence that directly harms Black people and communities. As an organization, we are committed to dismantling barriers to justice, and this work must include ending the unacceptable and racist police violence epidemic that is killing Black communities across this country, as well as the legal systems that enable it.
Please take action with us and support the following funds and organizations committed to racial justice, decarceration, and liberation.
Communities United Against Police Brutality
Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
Families Against Mandatory Minimums
Families for Justice as Healing
National Police Accountability Project
In solidarity with Black communities, we remember and honor the lives of all those known and unknown who have been murdered at the hands of police. We will continue to use our voices to affirm that Black Lives Matter today and every day.
