Black Lives Matter and Juneteenth
by Fauzia Burke
I am heartbroken over the murder of another Black person by police officers and the violent response by police against protestors. I stand with the victims of murder, violence, and oppression based on skin color and with those who are protesting for justice. Unless we as a country speak up, take responsibility for our past, acknowledge the present culture of injustice, and make a commitment to change, the list of Black lives lost to police brutality will never end. Black Healthcare Matters. Black Education Matters. Black Housing Matters. Black Voices Matter. And Black Lives absolutely Matter. Together we must support the Black community and speak out against the violence and racism.
