We Stand with Breonna Taylor

Breonna Taylor's life mattered. She was a public servant in her community and remained committed to creating a better life for herself. That came to a crashing halt by the same people paid to protect her. When the court made a ruling over the damage of a neighbor's property and completely ignored Breonna, they showed that they valued that wall more than her life. This gross miscarriage of justice and disregard for human life is heartbreaking and Breonna still deserves justice.. We cannot relent in its pursuit.

Remembering John Lewis and his Fight for Civil Rights

John Lewis was a leader in the fight for civil rights at a young age. He was a founder of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, a platform for younger black activists in the Civil Rights movement.  At 23, he was the youngest speaker at the famous March on Washington.

John Lewis faced violence and brutality from police on multiple occasions. This picture was taken right before state troopers beat him and gassed him on the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, Alabama. However, he would continue for the rest of his life, as he summed up in one of his his most famost quote:

"Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul od America."
