To my Brothers and Sisters of Charlotte: #BlackLivesMatter - Charlotte is the original chapter established to help us come together as a people to stand strong again the brutality and oppression that others would force onto us. We want to see an end to profiling and murder in our streets and communities and will work to disrupt the systems of oppression until we can show our colors without fear of unfair treatment. BLM organizers have been working to change biased systems and work towards solutions to allow all to experience fair justice and treatment. We all saw the "justice" served for Travon Martin, Micheal Brown, and Freddy Grey; how long until we lose our sons here in Charlotte. Help us to prevent the loss of inoccent lives in our city.
Our work includes community self care, non-violent direct action, policy work, and passively engaging out oppressors. Our membership will flourish with support from members world wide and at home. As we continue to challenge the system there are real costs involved. We need your support for materials and supplies, travel, and rent for facilities required for results. Please give what you can and encourage others to do the same.
