While people go around using “Black Lives Matter” as a slogan, many of the things taking place around us don’t reflect it. Black people are the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic by nearly every measure – but to make things worse, we’re also being TARGETED by racists!
Massive unemployment, food shortages, a housing crisis, and police brutality are just a few of the issues we’re facing. They aren’t new – these issues are embedded in the institutional racism we’ve worked to overturn for years. This isn’t a time to stop organizing. It’s time to keep going!
