NOW Statement on the Tragic Events on Minnesota, Baton Rouge, and Dallas

The tragic and senseless deaths of Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, and five police officers in Dallas, Texas have left so many people heartbroken and grieving. As we grieve, we must also renew our commitment to take action, to restore trust between police and the communities that they are intended to protect and serve, to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement of peaceful protest, and stand up to gun merchants and their apologists by enacting sensible gun legislation.
