Jacob Blake Deserves Justice

Kenosha Police shot Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, multiple times in the back on August 23, 2020. His three young sons sat a few feet away and witnessed the entire incident. The officers involved in this shooting clearly violated the Kenosha Police Department's Use of Force Policy, which says that "sworn personnel use only the amount of physical force reasonable and necessary to arrest, apprehend, or restrain a person."

We need our elected officials to finally recognize and take swift action against the systemic racism and police brutality that's all too prevalent in Wisconsin and beyond.

We need action NOW against officers' excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black men and women.

We need to stop adding names to the list of fallen brothers and sisters, which includes George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Juan Acevedo, and many more.

Sign this petition demanding that:

  1. As the video footage is clear and convincing, the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) expedite its investigation, completing it in 30 days or less.
  2. DCI recommends charges be filed against all officers involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake.
  3. Kenosha Police Department terminates all officers involved immediately.
  4. Kenosha City Council purchases body cameras for every officer immediately. The Council passed a 2017 ordinance requiring body cameras but hasn't yet added them to the city budget (and aren't currently planning to until 2022).
  5. Wisconsin state lawmakers pass legislation against police brutality and systemic racism.

Each signature added sends a signal to local and state leaders who have the power to make a difference in this case.

Together, we will get justice for Jacob Blake and his family — ADD YOUR NAME now.
