Shootings of Alton Sterling & Philando Castile, and more

I am deeply saddened by these new deaths of black men in the hands of police officers.

Alton Sterling was killed on Tuesday while selling CDs.
"Alton Sterling shooting: Second video of deadly encounter emerges" on cnn.com.

Philando Castile was killed at a traffic light yesterday.

This is helpful reading from www.justinccohen.com:
Advice for White Folks in the Wake of the Police Murder of a Black Person

This is a colorofchange.org petition for justice for Alton Sterling.

BATON ROUGE LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
From the site: "Since Friday, July 8, more than 200 people have been arrested in protests against the killing of Alton Sterling. This fund will cover all aspects of legal support for arrestees--most urgently, their bail and court fees."
Please help if you can, Deb
