“If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
What is Independence Day to a Black man denied his right to vote? To a woman denied the right to her own body? What is Independence Day to the child shot dead by police? To a poor household with no access to wealth but a mountain of debt? What is Independence Day to a country with a democracy in flames and limited freedoms for a limited few? In a country where we're not free to vote, we're not free to breathe, we're not free to choose, we're not free to be. What does the Fourth of July mean?
This reign of Domestic Terrorism and gun violence CANNOT continue.
Those espousing white supremacist ideologies attack the very foundations of our nation.
We CANNOT allow our lawmakers to do nothing while our communities, communities they are sworn to serve, represent, and protect are being slaughtered.
STAND UP ~ SHOW UP ~ SPEAK UP
The Juneteenth holiday is over but the fight for FREEDOM AND EQUALITY for ALL Americans continues. On Juneteenth 2018 Civil Rights lawyer Jeffery Robinson argued his most important case, with his powerful film.
Too often we hear, “This is not who we are. We are better than this.” The 2nd part of this statement is aspirational. The 1st part raises the question, "If this is not who we are, then who are we?"
"THE TRUTH CAN SET US FREE AND LEAD TO HEALING, REDEMPTION, RECOVERY AND REPAIR." We must continue to be RESILIENT. We must fight with the facts about this nation's history. The group that controls the narrative of our nation’s past controls the narrative of our nation's future.
The Vision and Mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race; to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred.
We have a long and honorable tradition of social justice in this country. As a branch of the nation’s foremost, largest, and most widely recognized civil rights organization we embrace the objectives of our parent organization and stand together in our fight for freedom and equality.
The fight for equal rights and equality are far from over and the fight for freedom is not free. Join us in the war against the racial disparities that are still too prevalent in America.
