Beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock, and many more are coming together to reveal 23 ways that you could be killed if you are black in America in this new video produced by Mic.

Some of the actions include “falling to signal a lane change,” “riding in your girlfriend’s car with a child in the back,” “selling cigarettes outside of a corner store,” “riding a commuter train,” “walking home with a friend,” and more.

“Go to WeAreHereMovement.com to tell President Obama and Congress that the time for change is now. 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,” Alicia says at the end of the video.

The PSA was produced after the tragic shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile a week ago.
