Black women, girls, and non-binary folks deserve safety. We deserve not only to survive but also to thrive. Our DC chapter is working to decriminalize sex work because it is one of the main ways Black folks are incarcerated. Check out this thread!

Your Sunday Brunch has been INTERRUPTED. We need Detroit City Govt. to fight with us — for safe, affordable housing, health care and living wage jobs — not against us by using city funds to criminalize us. We’re fighting for our futures. .

Detroit cannot exchange their security for the illusion of safety. More tech doesn’t make us safer when the government utilizes this tech to find new ways to criminalize us and justify violence against us.

A $4M investment in Detroit’s police department = $4M investment in the criminalization and violence against Black Detroiters. Budgets tells priorities and is fighting to ensure we dismantle police and policing budgets.

Project Green Light is anti-Black. Facial recognition + Project Green Light are disproportionately condensed in neighborhoods where poor and working-class Black folks live. We know this is not a coincidence. They are targeting us.

No business as usual today in Detroit. We’re shutting it down because our communities need education, transportation, mental health care and safe, affordable housing — not surveillance.

Detroit City Govt. has failed our communities again, by handing over $4 million to the police department to build ‘Real Time Crime Centers’, instead of investing in what we need to survive and thrive.

In Detroit, block clubs are fighting against gentrification, mental health facilities closing, and folks having limited access to HIV medications.

So many problems with this. He didn't answer the question. He repeated a racist stereotype (using a debunked study). He still has a record player... But the pettiest problem... Does Joe Biden think black parents don't play their kids music?? Has he MET black people?

Also in Houston yesterday: 22 activists blocked the largest oil export facility in the country. It's Black and brown communities who experience the hardest impacts of the fossil fuel industry and the climate crisis. The time for action is now. Read more:

94 Crime Bill wasn’t ‘tough on crime. It was tough on our families and tough on our communities - for 25 YEARS. This has got to stop. We're demanding an answer from all the candidates: How will you combat incarceration and police violence?

Last night, the former vice president ignored the issue of reparations and instead talked about teacher pay and claimed poor families don't know how to raise kids. how you expect our votes if you won't you talk about reparations or Black people?

During last night’s debate, Joe Biden answered a question about confronting the legacy of slavery by implying that Black families don’t know how to raise their children. Consistent with what the showed, Joe Biden doesn’t care about Black people.
