What we do
Protests make it known to lawmakers and the general public that there is a large number of people backing the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Supporters are willing to fight and protest until new policies are enacted that hold police accountable for their actions. Protests are integral for the movement in order to rally support for the cause.
Changing our future starts with educating the people that will be leading our future. We plan on changing school curriculum to include more diverse viewpoints of history as opposed to a whitewashed version. We are currently drafting curriculum additions and edits for local schools.
The root of the racial inequity issue in the United States lies in policy. Current laws engenders police to use unwarranted force on individuals. They make it difficult to convict police with a fair trial by warranting them extra protections the rest of the population lacks. We have already sent out a letter to Massachusetts officials proposing a new policy.
Spreading awareness and educating others with the right information is one of the most important actions that we take. When people are not educated about unfamiliar subjects, they are instinctively afraid of such topics. Similar ignorance and misinformation have caused many outside of minority groups to be afraid of the BLM movement.
Enough is enough
When this organization was formed, its main objective was to organize local BLM protests in areas that did not formerly have them. Now, however, we strive to do so much more. Our ultimate aim is to end systematic racism through education and policy change, while making it easier for police to be held accountable for unjust actions with a fair trial that does not employ unfair protections such as qualified immunity.
We are always in need of additional help. If you are available or looking to be more involved in an organization such as this one, please drop an application below so the leadership team can review it. *Note* The form below will only be open while we are actively searching for new volunteers.
