Black Lives Matter

The roots of violence and oppression, whether they manifest as intimate partner abuse in the home or racist violence in the street, thrive when power is used to dehumanize others.  Upending violence and oppression can’t happen when only the injured and oppressed protest. Interrupting the pandemic of racist violence in our country demands action by white people, especially white people in power. This is true nationally; it is equally true in our local community.
