A broad coalition of civil rights groups delivered more than 500,000 signed petitions to the Justice Department (DOJ), demanding that Attorney General Loretta Lynch launch a full investigation into the death of Sandra Bland and into the practices and policies of the Waller County, Texas police department and the prosecutors office immediately.

..

While visiting Prairie View A&M University, a historically Black college and university (HBCU), in preparation for taking a job there, Bland, a 28 year-old graduate of the school, was pulled over for a minor traffic violation on July 10. That traffic stop escalated to an arrest and on Monday, July 13, Bland was found dead in a Waller County jail cell.

..

As news spread of Blands mysterious death while in police custody spread across social media, civil rights groups decried another example of driving while Black and police brutality.

Wilkins, who described herself as an educator and a small business owner, said that she started the petition because it is time for change.

..

As an African American mother, I am appalled at the stealing of our children and our future leaders and this is totally unacceptable to me, said Wilkins.

..

Eugene Puryear, who works with the Stop Police Terror Project in Washington, D.C., a group committed to ending racist, militarized policing in the U.S., said that activists dont need to appeal to institutions, they need to transform institutions.

..

The petitions are not just names on pieces of paper, they represent the power of a potential mass movement in this country that has already changed the conversation, said Puryear, referring to the on-going dialogue about criminal justice reform.

..

Wilkins said that as a mother, she was tired of these untimely deaths at the hands of police officers and that she was also tired of being afraid for the lives of her four adult children.
