Black Lives Matter movement inspires solidarity

Young Progressives of America supports Black Lives Matter

YPA links up in solidarity with Black Lives Matter New York in support of justice for Philando Castile. Mr. Castile was shot and killed by a police officer after being pulled over in Falcon Heights, Minnesota − an event capture on dashcam, which helped to exonerate the victim from any wrongdoing. Mr. Castile’s daughter and girlfriend, who live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook, were in the car. The officer was acquitted on in June 2017 of all charges.
