Black Lives Matter Rally

“A Day To Stand In Solidarity,” was one of a number of actions the Leary Association has taken in response to police brutality and racial profiling. The event petitioned the community to look to each other in addition to local officials to bring about change.

Some of the demands listed in the call to action included:

  1. review and change of policies and regulations at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in regards to racial profiling, harassment and excessive use of force
  2. an improved vetting process for hiring officers
  3. the demilitarization of CMPD
  4. the reevaluation of qualified immunity and confidential personnel filing laws
