Dear fellow MoveOn member,
I'm Lois Wilkins, a MoveOn member in Freeland, Michigan, and I started a petition to the U.S. Department of Justice which says:
The Department of Justice must conduct an independent investigation into the death of Sandra Bland in Texas. The circumstances surrounding her traffic stop are suspicious and deserve an independent, thorough, and accountable investigation—especially in light of new video footage.1
We cannot allow the local police to investigate themselves. The Department of Justice has the authority—and power—to find out what happened to Sandra Bland.
Demand justice: launch an independent federal investigation of Sandra Bland's death.

This petition was created on MoveOn's online petition site, where anyone can start their own online petitions. Lois Wilkins didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
