Baltimore, MD: Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman NAACP National  Board of Directors, penned the following open letter to Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake:

Dear  Mayor Rawlings-Blake:

On behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), we commend your leadership in the wake of the tragic death of Mr. Freddie Gray, Jr. As a life long member of the community, we greatly appreciate your efforts to restore peace and provide a safe haven for families in Baltimore.

We recognize the extraordinary challenges you have faced. However, there remains crucial work to be done to ensure law enforcement accountability, regain the trust of the community, and to rebuild your city.

We commend State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby’s decision today to begin the judiciary process by issuing criminal charges against the six (6) Baltimore police offiers involved  in  Freddie Gray’s death.

The NAACP has called for passage of The End Racial Profiling Act that addresses the insidious  practice  of discriminatory  treatment  by law enforcement.

We look forward to continuing to work with you, the State’s Attorney office, our NAACP local and state conference leaders, clergy and other dedicated Baltimoreans to not only revive our great Charm City, but to make Baltimore an even better place to live, work and raise our families.


Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman

NAACP National  Board of Directors

Leon W. Russell, Vice Chairman NAACP National  Board of Directors
