NCBCP President Melanie Campbell Responds to Dallas Police Shootings

After two days in which two Black lives were taken by police and now last night's murder of five Dallas police officers who were merely doing their jobs protecting peaceful protesters,I am stunned and heartbroken. This is a time that is so hard to grasp where it will end up for Black people and the nation as as whole.

The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation joins the nation in praying for the police officers families who were gunned down so senselessly as well as the victims who are in hospital fighting for their lives. It is our hope that this nation find strength in prayer and in unity."

The National Coalition, founded in 1976, creates and enlightens communities by building institutional capacity that provides and develops leadership. By educating, motivating, organizing, and mobilizing Black communities, the National Coalition seeks to encourage full participation in a barrier-free democratic process. The National Coalition works to expand, strengthen, and empower communities to make voting and civic participation a cultural responsibility and tradition.
