Can’t Value Black Lives If You Don’t Value Black Agency
June 11, 2020
If black lives matter, black agency must matter too, states Jerroll Sanders, President of ONUS, Inc.
Sanders, drafter of The Equality in Policing Act years earlier (formally known as URLEIA), says the reforms announced are not enough.
Sanders asserts that now is a seminal moment: Many who previously took aim at the phrase ‘black lives matter’ now echo its truth.
But merely acknowledging that black lives matter is not enough says Sanders.
In recognition of black agency, Sanders argues that The Equality in Policing Act (URLEIA) and all its safeguards should be brought to the table so the American public can envision what policing can become (#BlackAgencyMatters).
