Taking A Long Term View

Changing the attitudes and behaviors of many people.

Changing culture (what is considered acceptable and unacceptable) changing laws (local, state and federal).

Making unnecessary police violence a crime.

Electing candidates who support equal treatment under the law.

Providing truly equal opportunities for education and employment for African-Americans.

Establishing and reporting the metrics by which impact and success can be measured. and so much more.

We can’t just eliminate bad systems, we have to create good systems.

We need to become educated, motivated and active in doing so.

And we each need to do what we can do, now — regardless of our ethnic background, age, religion, gender, ethnicity, or any other description. Because we’re all human, we’re all in this together, and ending racism is critical to a healthy future for the United States of America for every single one of us.

  • Get educated (learn about black history, and current injustices)
