An Open Letter to City of Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin June 17, 2020:
We have joined together in writing this letter because we could not remain silent while the leaders of our community have yet to announce any police reforms. There are actions that can be implemented now that would reduce the likelihood of violence by police officers in the future.
The frustration and anger that we are feeling is from our own personal experiences and the constant struggle of wanting our voices to be heard. We must change and reform police policy in Fayetteville to ensure that the city we live in currently is better for our children. While we acknowledge the progress that has been made in recent years, there is much more that can be done.
