Emmett Till Alert System
A new alert system has been launched in Maryland to notify Black leaders and clergy about credible threats or hate crimes.
The Emmett Till Alerts system – named in honor of the 14-year-old Black teen who was murdered in 1955, after a White woman, Carolyn Bryant Donham, claimed Till whistled at her – is modeled after the Amber Alert system.
\The Caucus of African American Leaders “We have to take hate crimes and terrorist threats seriously,” Carl Snowden of the Caucus of African American Leaders said during the news conference.
When an act of racial violence is reported, Snowden says a team will sort through the details and determine if an alert should be sent out to subscribers to the service. The idea is to allow members in a local community where an act of racial violence or hatred occurs to be able to take appropriate actions to protect themselves and their family.
The alerts are by invite only for now, but Snowden said he hopes others will be able to sign up for the service after a trial period.
“We’re just beginning. We’re going to see how the system works…I suspect what you’ll find is this is going to be replicated nationally very, very quickly,” he said.


This is an Emmett Till Alert. Consider this as a Severe Advisory Alert!! We have information that indicates that there are planned coordinated violent attacks to be carried out against children and adults in daycare and other facilities within the Black Community across the United States. This information has been obtained from sources that have been tracking communication among several groups and individuals on the dark web. therefore, we are asking that Black daycare centers across America heighten their security to adequately prepare for this potential threat.
