A Matter of Equal Justice

It has come to the attention of the Maricopa County Branch NAACP (MCBNAACP) that Black Lives
Matters Protestors (who participated in several protests in Phoenix, AZ), may be subjected to “gang
affiliation enhancement” charges which will result in harsher punishment. The MCBNAACP views this
possible action as a threat to equal justice and request the removal of the “gang affiliation
enhancement” charges.
