State-sanctioned violence against Black Americans has been a reality in this country since before its founding. This violence manifests in different ways, but the common thread that links these violent incidents together is the racism that pervades and upholds the U.S. criminal legal system.Â
Our generations are the largest and most diverse in the history of this country, and the injustice consistently perpetrated by the U.S. criminal legal system is antithetical to our values as young people. It is imperative that we use our collective power to demand justice for Black Americans and an end to this cycle of state-sanctioned violence.Â
