    The Message

    Dear US Attorney General Loretta Lynch,

    Sandra Bland’s violent arrest and subsequent death in police custody demands an immediate federal investigation. Her story is all too familiar to both Black and Latino families in America. As these stories pile up, with little justice or accountability, we hear a clear message: the police do not serve us, and the federal government does not protect us from their abuse.

    The local authorities responsible for Bland’s unjust arrest and death cannot be trusted to lead the investigation in this case. As the United States Attorney General you have the power and responsibility to intervene, seek the truth, and ensure justice for Sandra Bland.

    Recently, Texas police pulled 28-year-old Sandra Bland as she drove to her new job for allegedly failing to signal a lane change. After police ripped Sandra from her car and violently slammed her the ground, she was unjustly arrested, charged with assault and then taken to Waller County Jail. Seventy two hours later, she was dead.

    Police are claiming that Sandra took her own life, but her family and friends doubt that story, and there are many unanswered questions about the case.

    This story is all too familiar to both Black and Latino families across the country. Time and time again, violent and discriminatory police kill and lie to cover up their brutal action.

    Will you join us in urging Attorney General Lynch to thoroughly investigate Sandra's death and hold all those responsible fully accountable?
