These Hollywood moms Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian West and Charlize Theron have taken to different media platforms to speak about the shooting death of black people by the Police and express their fear for the lives of their children.

As shared on Instagram by Halle Berry:
  "What will my brown son's future be? What will your brown son's future be? The uncertainty is real. I beg you not to be a bystander in this life, but to go out and find ways to make peaceful change. Our boys need us so rather than launching into deep sentiment here on this platform, I promise to find ways to get involved and help. Please do the same. You can start by reaching out to your local politicians, legislators & government officials NOW.
Let us be heard.
God bless all the victims and families of these senseless CRIMES.

Charlize Theron spoke against police shootings during an interview with HipHollywood while promoting her animated movie: Kubo and The Two Strings.
She saying:

"I want to be proactive in some way and it's not enough to sit and complain," Theron said emotionally. "It's really frightening when you have little kids, I have two Africa-American kids and the world has to get rid of it's racism, and we have to turn the page, it's been a long long time, we have to turn the page."

Kim Kardashian shared a post on her website and app to address the death of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile:
She wrote:

This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murder by police officers.
Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken.
I was left speechless, angry and numb.
I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the Police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust -the people who "protect and serve"--may not be protecting and serving him because of the colour of his skin. The last thing we need is to fuel anger with more hard or violence, especially toward the many incredible police officers who risk their lives every single day to protect our families and communities. We must peacefully use the power of our voices and the strength of our numbers to demand changes in the judicial system so that brutality doesn't ever go unpunished.

It is our responsibility as Americans and as parents to create a safe future for our children. We must do something NOW. We must speak up until we are heard and real, effective changes are made.
Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Sean Bell... and unfortunately so many more.

Hashtags are not enough. This must and now.
