140 Black Marylanders killed by police

After police killed George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and too many other Black people, the ACLU of Maryland released a list of 140 Black Marylanders killed by police. That’s not even a complete list, and it’s mostly just people from 2014-2020. This list continues to grow because violence against Black people by police is still happening.

We must continue to #SayTheirNames.

We must work to reimagine the whole policing system because it’s broken. This work is necessary, not optional. Anything short of enacting impactful reforms is unacceptable.

Friend, are you looking for a way to plug into this work? We’re building a network of Marylanders who want to stay in the loop about critical actions and updates on impactful police change. Your voice is critical to this work.
