Recently, former President Barack Obama made a statement on Instagram encouraging civic leadership and participation at the LOCAL levels, something we all know is CRITICAL to making the change we seek happen in our communities. https://www.instagram.com/barackobama/.
Also shared is An Advocacy Toolkit for Fair, Safe and Effective Community Policing which can be found here, https://www.obama.org/wp-content/uploads/Toolkit.pdf, from the Obama Foundation website. Additionally, a list of resources to be informed about police violence and antiracism in America and opportunities to be engaged can be found here: https://www.obama.org/anguish-and-action/.
