June 4, 2020 – NATIONAL – Across the country cities have erupted in protest and many are in flames. The horrific and violent murders of George Floyd, Nina Pop, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and Dreasjon Reed are inexcusable. The compounding crisis of COVID-19 and increased police brutality speaks to the interconnected nature of white supremacy, racial capitalism, and the role of state sanctioned terrorism. Our communities continue to be overpoliced and under-served. That is the backdrop to righteous anger and uprisings we have seen these past few weeks.
We unapologetically call out these forces of terror and demand structural and fundamental change. Join us with Activist and Scholar Angela Davis, Kayla Reed with Action STL, Ntanya Lee with Leftroots, Timmy Rose with Dissenters, Greisa Martinez with United We Dream, and Karissa Lewis with M4BL as we speak truth to power, harness our collective power in defense of Black lives, and chart a new pathway towards freedom.
