We mourn the death of George Floyd, killed by police. We mourn the death of Ahmaud Arbery, killed by prejudicial Whites for false suspicion of criminal activity while jogging through his own neighborhood. We mourn the death of Breonna Taylor, killed by police in her own home. These cases amplify the reality that Blacks continue to be targeted across all sectors of our society for harassment, torture, mass incarceration and death due to explicit and implicit racism built into systems and mindsets.
Over the course of the next few weeks, the NPSC will be producing fact sheets for wide dissemination. Our objective is to present what we know about structures and systems in our society that house racism through discriminatory practices and policies. Research and evidence will support the content, followed by policy recommendations that flow from the logic. Click on the button below to view our work.
