...if we are to EVER adequately address police brutality and profiling, we can’t spend our dollars where OUR BODIES are not respected. THIS APPLIES TO EVERY ENTITY THAT WON’T STAND WITH US IN THE FACE OF INJUSTICE!

We are doing young people a disservice, more than 30% of the jobs we’re training young people for won’t exist by the time they enter the workforce

Protect our women. This is wrong, this is unjust and this happens to alot of women when there are NO cameras around. Stand with our women. Defend their voice, and their right to ask why they’re being handled, being removed, being CHOKED. Be infuriated. Be willing to fight 🖕🏾🐽

The blatant disrespect and abuse of this woman can not be overlooked. Where can a black person exercise their rights, when police are called in to violate.

Police would like us to believe, that good cops outnumber the bad, unfortunately there are too many examples that show otherwise. It’s hard see any difference between those who are caught on camera and those who hide behind a blue wall of silence

To do the work, there is a false legitimacy narrative for founders, so it’s no wonder you see four and five organizations pop up after every tragedy... non-profit industrial complex is destroying our movements

The commercialization of the struggle is why we can’t win. The forced oppression-Olympics has people measuring their level of trauma against others, while funders ( who lack a clear understanding of the issues) sit back and tell organizations how to do the work

These are avoidable tragedies. According to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit that tracks shootings, already in 2018 more than 150 children have been killed or injured in shootings. This is an entirely American phenomenon.
