It takes a movement to create the systemic changes we need to re-imagine
our society, since both our government and our dominant culture were
created to protect the rights of white people and their property, which at
one point included enslaved people.
It takes a movement to propel ourselves toward that society by defunding
massive police budgets and re-investing in communities.
It takes a movement to ensure that the cops who killed Breonna Taylor—Sgt.
Jonathan Mattingly and officers Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove—are
brought to justice.
MoveOn has partnered with Indivisible, NARAL, NextGen, Planned Parenthood
Action Fund, Demos, Daily Kos, and other allies to present a three-part
anti-racism and allyship series to highlight the voices, activism, and
expertise of Black leaders in this movement. Together, we're learning and
challenging ourselves to recognize the opportunities to create change.
This week's speakers will include Karundi Williams, Executive Director of
re:power, discussing why it's necessary to center the voices and
experiences and leadership of BIPOC communities, specifically women of
color, in political movements. We will also have scholar, speaker, and
strategist Marcia Chatelain covering how systemic racism has been
historically built into the foundation of our country. Leading our
conversation will be MoveOn's Congressional Liaison and Washington, D.C.,
Strategist Reggie Hubbard.
It takes a movement to re-imagine our society, to invest in our
communities and defund police, to ensure justice for Breonna Taylor, and
so much more. These calls invite us all in to be part of this work.
