We are so grateful that @PresidentObama @POTUS signed the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crimes Reauthorization Act of 2016 on December 16, 2016. In the meantime, stay tuned for more details on the implementation of this important act. #coldcasejusticeinitiative #GetJustice #blacklivesmatter #EmmettTill #itsnevertoolate #investigationsmatter #thetruthmatters #pastisnotpast #justicematters #neverforget #wewillneverforget #thejourneyforjusticecontinues , #humanrights #civilrights #mamietillmobley
