URBAN LEAGUE OF LOUISIANA – COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS PROGRAMMING UPDATES

JUSTICE FOR RONALD GREENE

The Urban League of Louisiana, the National Urban League, NAACP Baton Rouge, VOTE, and the ACLU of Louisiana demand that action be taken immediately. It is too late for the actions to be swift – but it is not too late for the officers to be held accountable and for the state of Louisiana to demonstrate that all of its residents are deserving of justice and to be treated with dignity and humanity. 

One Year Later

Today, May 25th, marks the one year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, a day when the entire world watched bystander video that captured nearly 10 minutes of the horrors of police brutality in the glaring light of day.
