Tracey Ekwunoh started this petition to End Violence against African Americans and

 Policing plays a key role in maintaining inequalities between white and black people. Social scientists and public health scholars now widely acknowledge that police contact is a key vector of health inequality and is an important cause of early mortality for people of color. 1 and 1000 black men will be killed by the hands of white officers; 2.5 times more likely to be killed by police compared to they're white counterparts. Police violence is the leading cause of death for black men between 25 to 29 according to a study done in 2019 by the (PNAS) proceedings of the National Academy of Science. Police Brutally is detrimental to african americans mental health. Studies show a person of color is affected after experiencing or seeing another person of color brutally killed or injured causes trauma and a recurring reminder of the horrible history of being in slaved and killed ! Police Brutally causes depression and anxiety. The day to day fear and worry of thinking will i be next can my son or husband be next? Depression from seeing someone that looks like you be handled in death so carelessly. Seeing it over and over in media and tv. Police racial profiling causes african american to feel anxiety , why it causes anxiety is because of the uncertainty of if we will be killed during a traffic stop! Knowing your only being treated differently because of the color of your skin. Police brutally causes low self esteem. Seeing ourselves in every black american killed by police causes african american to not feel as though they matter and causes uncertainty when it comes to the future.

America is at its weakest.
