As a kid who has been involved in the streets, endured racial inequality and been incarcerated facing adult time, three things comes to my mind about how we can fix this: prevention, fair treatment of kids and re-entry.
Ever since President Obama commuted the prison sentences of 46 nonviolent drug offenders last week, reformers have been calling for similar acts of leniency for other nonviolent drug offenders still behind bars. Obama himself used his clemency declaration to denounce mass incarceration and racial disparities in sentencing, focusing on overpunishment of drug offenders in particular.
Please Mr. President, visit our girls behind bars--connect their lives to the larger discourse on criminal justice reform, and call attention to how we must do better by our girls too--because their lives matter.
On the 4th August 2011, Mark Duggan was shot and killed in Tottenham. His death led to widespread uprisings and riots! Those who were arrested and imprisoned were described as 'feral youths' but we now know, as the result of an exclusive article in the Mail on Sunday newspaper, that Mark had been set up by senior officers working within the MPS Operation Trident Unit.
Join Mark's family as we launch our demand for a public inquiry into the role of Operation Trident officers in putting guns out on the streets of London. Join the families of Mark Duggan, Cynthia Jarrett, Roger Sylvester, Joy Gardner and many other bereaved families as we formally launch NATIONAL INJUSTICE DAY.

Everyone is working to figure out how Sandra Bland died, and that is important. But what people are missing is how she lived. This extraordinary woman was an amazing activist, and this video shows the kind of passion she had for other black people. Take a listen.
The scenarios in this innovative, gaming-style video are drawn from real-life testimonies of children in War Child’s projects across Africa and the Middle East, who have witnessed and experienced the most unacceptable violations to their rights.
The HELP campaign is urging reform in the humanitarian system which currently neglects the needs and rights of children in war.
The hard-hitting ‘Duty of Care’ video is at the forefront of War Child UK's HELP campaign. It subverts first person shooting games by showing the horror of war through the eyes of Nima, a nine-year-old girl.
The creative team behind the video were Heydon Prowse from BBC3's The Revolution Will Be Televised, Creative Directors Guy Davidson and Daniel Clarke from London-based agency TOAD, Director Daniel Luchessi and the post production team at H&O and OgilvyOne.
The purpose of the campaign video is to engage people to sign the petition which calls on the UK Government to become champions for children in war, such as those Nima represents in the video.
Providing protection can reduce and prevent atrocities against children. Yet a shocking new statistic released by War Child UK reveals that less than 3% of humanitarian funding is spent on protecting children in war zones, despite them making up more than 50% of the population.
The campaign is targeting the upcoming World Humanitarian Summit to ensure that this unjust disparity is addressed. The greater the level of support, the more difficult it becomes to ignore the protection of children in war when world leaders meet at the World Humanitarian Summit next May.
War Child UK knows, from over two decades of expertise in the field, that child protection interventions in war save lives and that children and their families prioritise their safety and education above even the most basic needs such as food and shelter.
The simple truth is, whilst food, water and shelter are daily necessities, they do not keep a child in war safe from harm.
The medical kit in the video demonstrates that these tangible forms of aid are offering a cure to only part of the problem – they cannot treat trauma, and they cannot stop the violent acts that cause the trauma in the first place.
2014 was the worst year on record for children in conflict and 2015 has seen further deterioration; being dubbed the ‘year of fear for children’ by UN Envoy for Education, and former UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.
The landmark summit, which will determine the fates of millions of children worldwide, takes place in Istanbul next May and is an initiative of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who stated: “The world is changing, and we need to make sure we change with it to meet the needs of those affected by crisis in a timely and effective manner… The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance around the world has doubled in just ten years.”
He has called on UN member states to “aim high" and said the World Humanitarian Summit is “a major opportunity to align major global commitments to support the world’s most vulnerable people.”
War Child is calling upon the UK Government to seize this unique opportunity and use its influence to prevent grave violations occurring against children in conflict emergencies.
The HELP campaign aims to unite thousands of people behind this goal and asks them get behind the campaign by signing an online petition.
Ryan Stoke was a young man shot in the back by Kansas City Police nearly two years ago in the Power & Light District. An entertainment district know for dress codes that discriminate against people of color. What is known is Ryan had no weapons or drugs and alcohol in his blood system.
