ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA - MAY 31: Demonstrators march on I-94 while participating in a protest against police brutality and the death of George Floyd on May 31, 2020 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Protests continue to be held in cities throughout the country over the death of Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

Since the disturbing and tragic murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others at the hands of the police, millions of people across the U.S have started and signed petitions to demand racial justice. In just two weeks, thousands of petitions have been created on Change.org calling on local leaders to ensure police reform & accountability, to enforce anti-racist policies at schools and universities, and to remove Confederate monuments.

In North Carolina, this includes the following petitions:

“People are coming together in communities across the country to demand real, meaningful action by local authorities to advance racial justice,” said Ansa Edim, Senior Manager at Change.org. “We’re seeing people spurred by national movements, calling for tangible ways to demand change and shift our culture in their local towns, police departments and schools.”
