National Coalition on Black Civic Participation Condemns Police Killing of Alton Sterling

The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation is outraged at the unjust killing of Mr. Alton Sterling by two white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

We fully support the U. S. Justice Department Civil Rights Division's swift decision to investigate the horrific killing of Alton Sterling.

Our prayers are with the Sterling family and we join them in solidarity in their call for answers and justice in this senseless killing of their loved one.

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.
