Alpha Statement on the Death of << INSERT RECENT DEATH OF ANOTHER PERSON OF COLOR>> at the Hands of Police

Since the death of <<insert the name of a past death of a person of color>>, we have seen the deaths of too many other people of color at the hands of police officers. On <<insert date>>, in <<insert city, state>>, <<insert recent death of another person of color>> was <<insert method of killing>> for <<insert random act that does not warrant the death penalty>>.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those suffering because of <<insert name of a recent death of another person of color>>’s death. The death of yet another <<insert person’s race>><<insert person’s sex>> at the hands of those sworn to protect and serve the community is a stern reminder of the urgent need for criminal justice reform. <<Insert recent death of another person of color>> was a <<insert person’s familial ties>> of <<insert number of children, if any>> and a <<insert job/occupation>> whose life was senselessly cut short due to a tragic encounter with the police. <<(If necessary) We commend and applaud the courageous citizen of <<insert city, state>> who captured the <<insert method of killing>> incident on video then quickly released it to the family.>>

From <<insert the name of a past death of a different person of color>> to <<insert the name of a past death of a different person of color>> and <<insert the name of a past death of a different person of color>> to <<insert the name of a past death of a different person of color>>, the narrative of excessive force and brutality perpetrated by police officers continues to permeate headlines, forcing us to move united in collective action. Together, we must provide solutions within our criminal justice system that will keep children protected, communities safe, and law enforcement officers properly trained and engaged.
