Since video of the tragic killing of black 17-year-old Laquan McDonald of Chicago by a white police officer was released, people on social media have come together using the hashtag #beforeyouwatch.
The Black Youth Project 100, an activist member-based organization of black 18-35-year-olds, has uploaded video love letters to black people on its Facebook page using the hashtag in an effort to encourage strength following the graphic video's release.
"We are here to support in whatever way we can," she said.
Officer Jason Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder in McDonald's killing earlier this week.
