#PhilandoCastile #AltonSterling #BlackLivesMatter — Share Your Words and Thoughts With the Express

It may be too soon to reflect. But for those of you who feel the urgent need to share, send your thoughts our way.

Shock, sadness, outrage — like most Americans, we here at the Express are in disbelief over the latest law-enforcement killings in this country. After all these years and all these deaths … it’s still happening.

We’re definitely going to write about this in next week’s issue. But we also want to give over pages in our July 13 paper to you, our readers. For many, it may be too soon to reflect. But for those of you who feel the urgent need to voice frustration and anger — as well as steps toward solutions — the Express would like to amplify your perspectives. It’s your paper next week.

The details: Email what you have to say, anywhere from 100-500 words, with the subject line “#BlackLivesMatter” to [email protected] The Express will publish letters and essays online and in next week’s issue. Deadline is ASAP, but Monday at the latest. Please be sure to include your name and city.

Take care,
The Express team
