National Organization of Black Law Enforcement (NOBLE) President Vera Bumpers
Last week we saw Nike release their 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign prior to the official start of the NFL season. Today, NOBLE announced their active support of the choice of individuals to peacefully protest as a fundamental right protected under the First Amendment of our United States Constitution. They believe that NFL players, that are protesting, embody this in their efforts to spread awareness about two of our nation’s most pressing issues—criminal justice reform and police trust and legitimacy.
NOBLE’s President Vera Bumpers added:
“Silencing and condemning citizens who voice their beliefs about social issues, which are alive within our country, will never help in developing solutions to gaining citizens’ respect and trust for law enforcement and the criminal justice system.”
President Bumpers discusses:
