Halle Berry has taken to Instagram to urge people to ‘find ways to make peaceful change’ following the Dallas shootings in which five police officers were shot dead during what was supposed to be a peaceful protest against the shooting of black men by police.

Berry posted a picture on Instagram stating her fears for her son’s future.

"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,” she wrote.

"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."

Sarah Jessica Parker also took to Instagram to voice her views, urging for conversations and debate to heal society’s rifts. She also paid tribute to those who had lost their lives.

Kim Kardashian also added her voice to the discussion, voicing her concerns that her children will grow up believing "their lives don't matter" in essay for the #Blacklivesmatter campaign.

"This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered 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,” she wrote in her emotional essay.

"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 color of his skin."
