"It's time to end white silence to these murders. There are no bystanders here, we are all affected by the terror wrought in Black communities, and it's in our self-interest as white people to help stop the epidemic of police violence," Rebecca Frederick, 30 and a mother of three from Louisville, said in a press release.
