Bolder Advocacy & Alliance for Justice Statement on the Police Shooting of Jacob Blake
Bolder Advocacy is a program of Alliance for Justice (AFJ). AFJ’s president, Nan Aron, just issue a statement on the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
The statement, in part, reads:
“The shooting of Jacob Blake is sickening. Time and again, we have watched in horror as police violate the rights of Black people with impunity. We are angry. We are outraged.
We join everyone in saying ENOUGH.
George Floyd shouldn’t have died.
Breonna Taylor shouldn’t have died.
Tony McDade shouldn’t have died.
Ahmaud Arbery shouldn’t have died.
Rayshard Brooks shouldn’t have died.
Sadly, innumerable and unnamed others should not have died at the hands of those sworn to protect and serve.”
At Bolder Advocacy, we pledge to continue to deepen our work with nonprofits and service organizations serving those communities impacted by the justice system to advocate for urgently and long-needed structural changes, to ensure that organizations know when and how they can register voters, educate candidates and the public, support measures, and advocate around key issues.
Whether you work for a foundation, a 501(c)(3), or a 501(c)(4), there are ways that every organization can use their resources to call for change. Bolder Advocacy is here to help any nonprofit speak out for racial justice and an end to police brutality.
