A Petition for Racial Justice and Equality

| Activism

Alicia and We Are Here Movement have launched a petition to demand racial justice and equality. If the petition receives 100,000 signatures, the White House is required to respond. Make your voice heard and sign the petition here.

“Signing this petition is one small step for us, one giant leap for racial justice and equality…Let’s do this! Put your feelings and frustrations into action…” – Alicia

The reasons for the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling add to the long list of “everyday actions punishable by death if you’re black in America.” In partnership with Mic.com, Alicia, We Are Here Movement and many artists have come together to highlight the horrifying list of 23 actions.
