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.
