CBCF Statement on the Shooting Death of Michael Brown

WASHINGTON—A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) today released the following statement on the shooting death of 18-year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

"We share in the sadness and disappointment to learn that Michael Brown, another unarmed black teen, was killed over the weekend. Although there are many questions that still need to be answered about how and why this happened, far too often we have seen similar tragedies, like the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2012.
