The Movement for Black Lives started a petition to Black peoples and our allies stating: 

We all witnessed the horrific violence of the past week. Since then, we’ve seen the attacks on our movement intensify. In Baton Rouge, Chicago, New York, Minneapolis and beyond, we are under attack. We were reminded that despite the gains of our movement, we have work to do to end the systemic violence that visits Black communities every day.

The Movement for Black Lives has released a pledge, asking everyone to show courage in the face of fear and political attacks. Ava Duvernay, Spike Lee, Jesse Williams and organizers around the world have taken a public stand. Now we need you to join over 10,000 people who have signed that pledge and recommit to this movement for justice.

Join us, and pledge to do the same: Stand with the Movement for Black Lives.

Take the Pledge: Join the Movement for Black Lives

Dear friend,

I just started a petition titled "Take the Pledge: Join the Movement for Black Lives"

Here's what it says: 

Guided by love, we continue to stand together for justice, human dignity and our shared goal of ending all forms of state violence against Black people. We organize, occupy, demonstrate, march and chant for a new future: A future we can be proud of. We stand on the shoulders of our ancestors, who fought for their freedom and ours. Like them, we want a world where our lives matter.

We want an end to the war being waged on Black people, in all its forms. Some people fear change, and that's ok. Many will attempt to halt our progress. That is not ok. Some will continue their attempts to undermine us, but we will remain undeterred.

For far too long, our unjust deaths have meant business as usual in this country. No more.

Our work remains undone until our lives are free of violence. That is the future we imagine.

Until that day comes:
We pledge togetherness--- we will not allow ourselves to be divided.
We pledge to allow our thinking and actions to be guided by love.
We pledge to bring courage and power into our communities, and stop their flow out.
We pledge not to be controlled by fear, but instead by our dreams.

Join us, and pledge to do the same: Stand with the Movement for Black Lives.
