Fair treatment in our justice system is a basic American right. Everyone deserves equal protection under the law and to be treated with dignity and respect.
The recent failures to indict white police officers in the deaths of unarmed black men clearly violate the principles of fairness and equal access to justice, undermining the rights granted to all of us under the United States Constitution.
Here at Empire Justice Center, we mourn the fallen and stand in solidarity with their families as well as all of those that have been affected by the inequities in our justice system that have been highlighted in the past several weeks.
We recommit ourselves to the pursuit of racial justice in all aspects of the justice system.
