Advocate for Justice
Change begins in our hearts as individuals first. Then we have the important discussions with our housemates, then our neighbors next door, then people at our churches, clubs, workplaces and non-profits that we are involved in. We speak truth in love, and keep speaking. We bring letters and public testimony to our community and city governing bodies including school boards. And to our state and federal representatives.
That’s why I made this page, to give myself & others one place to start on the individual side, and work all the way through to the national level. It’s not a comprehensive page, it doesn’t cover every dark corner of what we in our country have allowed. It’s just one tiny piece that I work on personally, so I’m sharing that with you.
Each post here represents just some of the atrocities that we must work solutions for so that every U.S. citizen has the same freedoms and protections. If this page doesn’t have parts of change you want to be involved in, please seek those out on Google. There is a LOT to do, so find a lane you can drive in.
Our Black and Native citizens should not have to fear being shot by police. Especially for all the ludicrous reasons they have been murdered for decade after decade. Indeed, no human should.
So on this page, you’ll see stories and action issues related to racism & mass incarceration, specifically the death penalty. You’ll see gofundmes for families of police victims. You’ll see their faces & their names, along with ways to help.
Then, in the “Read, Listen, Watch” section of this page, you’ll find a speech by Frederick Douglas, an audiobook that impacted me, a link to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and a really good video to explain some of the despicable mass incarceration issues targeted at Black people in the United States. You‘ll also find information about voting.
