NYU College Democrats Stand with #BlackLivesMatter

NYU College Democrats Stand with #BlackLivesMatter

In light of the events of the past week, the NYU College Democrats would like to reiterate our support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We stand with peaceful protestors nationwide as justice is sought for the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. 

As President Obama stated, "To admit we've got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance of reality of racial bias in law enforcement."
