“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” -MLK
As we see protests all across the country we see the great desire for a restructuring that is 400 years overdue. Oppression, racism and corruption have always existed throughout our government and society. These demonstrations are a display of the power to create progress that each of us have, together. But our influence and responsibility does not end with these marches.
Please, remember to
1. Fill out the census!
2. Register to vote and vote in every election. Changing government starts at the local level!
3. Support black owned businesses, and always be conscious of who your money goes to!
4. Organize! Stay involved with community activism beyond this time.
