Justice & Unity – Saint Paul

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by police brutality, gun violence and racism. It is time to take back our communities and fight for one another. Every Black life matters and we will not stop until it is known. Too often it is thrown in our faces that “Black on Black” crime is more of an issue but many fail to realize we have been fighting and continue to combat violence in our own communities. Let’s silence those negative voices and show just how much we are here fighting for all of our Black sisters, brothers, children, and elders.

It is time for us to join in unity with one another and fight this fight together. Division is how they win, Unity is how they crumble.

We specifically want to honor Jaffort Smith and his family with this march. Jaffort was shot 52 times by St.Paul Police in 2016 and his family still hasn’t received justice. The Smith family along with so many are still seeking justice. We have to stand with them and demand justice be done.

Please join us October 2nd, 4:30 pm at the Minnesota State Capitol! 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Saint Paul, MN 55155

Is this associated with BLM? BLM is a Marxist Organization and I will not support however I do support black lives and would attend. I will never support an organization funded Chinese government and George Soros. If this is not affiliated with BLM I would be bring my whole family.

If it’s unity you truly want, you would unite with the police. It’s commendable that you have been fighting crime in your own communities, but police are the professionals at it. Black on Black crime is more of an issue. That’s not a negative of positive statement; it’s just a fact. Jaffort Smith shot a woman and shot at police. He ignored repeated police instructions to drop his weapon. Court records show Smith had a long list of criminal felony offenses over the past decade. Smith was also convicted of domestic assault. Justice was served in his case. It’s not rational for the family or anyone else to “seek justice” in his case. You need to start seeing reality.
