Beyoncé first posted a call to action against police brutality this week, but following the deaths of five police officers in Dallas Thursday night, she also wrote a tribute video on the slain police her Instagram. Seven officers and two civilians were also injured during the shooting during a protest held in response to the murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Beyonce wrote: "Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured. No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence. To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence."
