Days after the Uvalde, TX mass shooting, the National Rifle Association had the audacity to hold its convention. BLM Houston gathered in protest!
One Black leader addressed the crowd – making sure her message was louder than a gun.
Known as the “Voice of Reason,” long-serving Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is determined to pass gun control laws. She’s been fighting this fight for 20 YEARS!
In 1999, she was on the Congress task force addressing Columbine, one of America’s first mass school shootings.
Gun control, while necessary, won't eliminate white supremacy or gun violence – and our community’s need for proactive self-defense is real! We should always be wary of “non-violent protest” messaging, when white supremacists will continue to arm themselves. And like Congresswoman Jackson Lee, we must prepare for a long fight!
