Following the recent wave of police killings of black Americans, almost two dozen celebrities joined forces to create a new PSA that demands political change.
Titled "23 Ways You Could be Killed If You Are Black in America," the video released Wednesday features cameos from Beyoncé, Chris Rock, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Bono, Adam Levine, Chance the Rapper, and many others.
In it, we see the names and faces of people who died from police violence. Among them: Alton Sterling, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, and two Minnesotans —Philando Castile and Jamar Clark.
Celebrities interject throughout the somber slideshow of the dead, offering ripped-from-the-headlines "ways" you can die as a black American — failing to signal a lane change, riding in your girlfriend's car with a child in the back, walking home with a friend, making eye contact, attending a birthday party, etc.
“Go to WeAreHereMovement.com to tell President Obama and Congress that the time for change is now,” Keys says at the end of the video. “We demand radical transformation to heal the long history of systemic racism so that all Americans have the equal right to live and to pursue happiness.”
The PSA urges viewers to sign a petition that seeks “radical transformation" from U.S. lawmakers, including "$150 billion directed at poor communities over the next 10 years."
