Statement from the CCD Board of Directors on the Murder of Tyre Nichols
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Consortium for Constituents with Disabilities (CCD), we express our sorrow, anguish, and outrage over the brutal murder of Tyre Nichols at the hands of officers in the Memphis Police Department. Tyre Nichols was a Black man with a disability whose encounter with police began with a traffic stop. People with disabilities, especially Black people, are at higher risk of arrest or harm from police. We join our partners in the disability and civil rights communities who are calling for justice and systemic change.
