In recent weeks, two highly visible cases have gone to trial. Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael, and William Bryan face charges of murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment in the death of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. Kyle Rittenhouse is facing homicide after he shot and killed Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum at a demonstration in Wisconsin. In both trials, nearly all white juries were selected.
Today's action is to read about America's White Jury Problem and how it has led to an "over-representation of white suburbanites on juries increas[ing] the median sentence handed down to Black defendants."
