Kim Kardashian has issued a statement regarding the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

On Friday morning, the reality star put out a brief letter entitled “#BlackLivesMatter” on her website, stating that she was “appalled and completely heartbroken” by the deaths of Sterling and Castile.

In the letter, Kim also explains that she wants her children with rapper Kanye West to “grow up knowing that their lives matter.” She goes on to say that American parents have a responsibility “to create a safe future for our children.”

Kim concludes the letter with the declarations “Hashtags are not enough” and “This must end now,” followed by a link to search for legislators by congressional district, donation pages for Sterling, for Castile and for Black Lives Matter.
