No parent should ever need a talk with their child to discuss how they must act around the police so that they won’t get hurt or killed.
No citizen of our great country should ever fear a police encounter that may end in harm to them by the hands of the very police that exists to protect them.
No group in our United States should feel that they are at more risk of such harm than any other.
For these reasons, we support Black Lives Matter.
We have many members, volunteers, and friends from law enforcement who share these same beliefs.
We will stop all outreach activities for the next 8 weeks to allow our volunteers to participate into BLM activities as they need to. We will bring what we learn from this participation into our own activities.
