Update #1 ·


A Florida jury has found #MichaelDunn guilty of murdering 17-year-old #JordanDavis. 

Dunn's conviction is an incredibly important and rare moment of accountability for violence perpetrated against Black youth, especially in Florida, where gun-wielding vigilantes, use the state's so-called "Stand Your Ground" or "Shoot First" law as a deflective shield for racially-motivated killings. 

Today's verdict was made possible because of the tremendous organizing of ColorOfChange members and others who did not sit silent after the initial verdict, we organized and pressured Florida Prosecutors to retry Dunn and hold him completely accountable for his deadly actions. And that's exactly what they did. 

While a guilty verdict could never bring Jordan back, by sharing this powerful image we can honor him, send our love and support to his family, and grow the movement to end violence perpetrated against Black youth.
