In today's @nytopinion, I wrote about the police killing of a Black woman in Texas named #AtatianaJefferson. If you have time, you should read it. And if it activates you, you should visit our #SayHerName webpage: 1/13
Almost 5 years ago, over 25,000 protesters surged through the streets for Millions March NYC, an anti-police brutality demonstration fueled in part by grand jury decisions not to indict police officers for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. 2/13
What’s less known is that #SayHerName, a campaign to elevate the names of Black women, girls and femmes killed by police, also emerged from that moment. These names remain obscure--like India Beaty, Shelly Frey, Jessica Williams--even today. 3/13
