Racism is a stain on our humanity, and good people must gather peacefully together to resist and repel it.  We must see and hear each other; and we must work together to rewrite the rules so that everyone, with no exceptions, can live without fear, care for their families, have their voices heard, and their rights respected.  

If you are looking for ways to participate and/or support, a number of organizations and resources are listed here.

"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist.  We must be anti-racist."  - Angela Davis 


Love and solidarity,
