I’m writing in reflection of what has happened in Baltimore, New York, Ferguson, Cleveland, Florida and so many other communities across America. Our thoughts continue to be with the families – from Freddie Gray’s in Baltimore to Brian Moore’s in New York and far too many others – that have been touched by recent tragedy. Their pain is a constant reminder that we can and must do better in addressing the inequality of justice and opportunity in communities across America.
