The Killing of Black People By Police is Americas Human Rights Crisis

THE KILLING OF BLACK PEOPLE BY POLICE IS AMERICA’S HUMAN RIGHTS CRISIS and MUST BE ADDRESSED BY THE UNITED NATIONS
Statement By Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.
Thursday, October 28, 2020

We must appeal to collective sense of justice before the appropriate Commissions at the United Nations to address the killing of unarmed Black and Brown people in the streets of America. As party to the various human and political rights treaties, the United States must stand before its peer sovereign nations and justify how she can continue to allow and endorse the excessive uses of force and the inhumane use of deadly force against Black people. We intend to take and press our case of political oppression and civic genocide at the hands of police in the United States, and we will lay them before the United Nation Commission on Human Rights.

A Public Health Manifesto

Rainbow PUSH Coalition and National Medical Association
Joint Statement on the Response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic:
A Public Health Manifesto
April 15, 2020

Just as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, COVID-19 has emerged as a global threat. In the United States the effects of the disease have disproportionately impacted African Americans and other communities of color. According to state data currently available (and that includes demographic information), rates of infection and death amongst the African American population far exceeds the representation of African Americans in the overall population (in some instances by a multiple of more than 5). This global pandemic has amplified the effects of pre-existing health disparities, structural impediments, and the ongoing harm done by inadequate strategies to address the dangers of COVID-19 in the African American community specifically, and communities of color overall. This joint public health strategy proposed by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition1 and the National Medical Association2 addresses these concerns, and proposes viable, actionable steps that can be immediately implemented to reduce the possibility of irreparable harm due to COVID-19 on these at-risk communities.
