On Sunday, August 23, Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer Rusten Sheskey, while his three children sat in the car. While Jacob Blake is thankfully still with us, he is still fighting for his life and at least temporarily paralyzed. Protests have rippled throughout Kenosha, demanding justice for Jacob Blake and an end to police brutality.
It is an absolutely horrific story — and one that we cannot let become just another headline. Two officers have been put on administrative leave, but that is not enough. They must be charged for this shooting.
We cannot claim to believe that Black Lives Matter if we do not stand up for every single Black life threatened by police. The public outcry has already worked — the Department of Justice has announced that they will be making a federal civil rights investigation. We must continue to push for justice in this moment.
Take action to demand justice for Jacob Blake and for Kenosha protestors today.
