No matter what we look like or where we live, we want our families to be whole and our communities vibrant. But the people entrusted to serve and protect us target, detain, and kill people – disproportionately Black people – while many politicians try to divide us. They know that if we’re made to fear each other, police officers meant to uphold the law can harm our communities. Elected leaders meant to represent our interests spend millions to militarize law enforcement. They also deny resources to the schools and healthcare we actually need.
Together, we can demand our government work for us. We need to fund our communities and set our kids up to thrive. Everyone deserves the chance to have a full and healthy future, no exceptions.
