    Running time:  8 min, 36 sec

    In this film Danette discusses briefly her son's case and then gives her analysis as to why we need a nationwide movement against Police Brutality in America. 

     

    Danette Chavis has been calling for National Action Against Police Brutality for several years with the knowledge that fighting for each individual case will not render justice; rather a nationwide collective awareness and effort will force the authorities to answer to the families who have lost loved ones to police violence, negligence and corruption.  She has authored a petition asking for National Action Against Police Brutality.  To sign the petition, please click here.
