message to the community.
For hundreds of years, black communities have been targeted and punished for the color of their skin. From experiencing severe police brutality, to receiving longer jail sentences, there has been no equality in our justice system.
The U.S government is rooted in racism and police continue to disproportionately arrest black people far more than any other race for the same “crime”. For example, the ACLU discovered that black people are 3.6 times more likely than white people to be arrested for cannabis. And this number increases in different states.
We support and stand with our black communities across the world to fight against racism and injustice. This is about humanity over politics. This is about justice over peace. We hear you. We see you. And we support you. Let’s change the system now so future generations can thrive and succeed. #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForFloyd
you can still make a difference.
We understand not everyone has the opportunity to make a donation or attend a protest. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t show support for the black community. We have made a list of petitions that are currently active so you can still make a difference.
Justice For George Floyd.
“George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer.
George was handcuffed and restrained and being completely cooperative when this all went down. The officer put his knee on George’s neck choking him for minutes on minutes while George screamed that he could not breathe. Bystanders beg for the police officer to take his knee off George’s neck, but the officer didn’t listen and continued to choke him.
Not that it would matter at all, but George was not even wanted for a violent crime. A grocery store that he was signing a bad check.
We are trying to reach the attention of Mayor Jacob Frey and DA Mike Freeman to beg to have the officers involved in this disgusting situation fired and for charges to be filed immediately.
Please help us get justice for George and his family!”
Justice For Ahmaud Arbery.
“On February 23, 2020, 25 year-old Ahmaud Arbery was chased and gunned down by Travis McMichael, son of retired Brunswick investigator Greg McMichael, under the father’s and son’s pretenses of witnessing a burglary in Satilla Shores of Glynn County.
McMichael’s account of the deadly encounter with Arbery was not released until nearly 6 weeks following the shooting.
In addition; McMichael’s questionable account of events and the police department’s poor communication efforts following Arbery’s death leads us to believe that Arbery was a victim of racial profiling.
No one has the right to pursue, attack and kill an unarmed, non-threatening individual. Ahmaud’s voice will be heard.”
Justice For Breonna Taylor.
“Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and model citizen. She loved her family and community. She worked at two hospitals as an essential worker during the pandemic.
One month ago, a division of the Louisville Police Department performed an illegal, unannounced drug raid on her home. Not a single officer announced themselves before ramming down her door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her.
Not only were the police at the WRONG HOUSE, but the man they were looking for had already been arrested earlier that day.”
