This was from our CVO Tahyira last night after she saw all the people in the streets on the nightly news. Her sentiment is shared across the spectrum from legal analysts to religious leaders. Criminal Justice reform is on the ballot as Kamala Harris is working hard to fight for real change in legislation that allows for no-knock warrants and stand your ground laws can be abolished. The Biden Harris ticket has also promised to move police funding more towards social services like mental health and substance abuse guidance.
We are asking folks to please protest peacefully and to remember this quote by Ruth Bader Gingburg, ““Fight for the things you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
