THE STORY:

GRASSROOTS GLOBAL JUSTICE wrote -

It Takes Roots to Change the System

This is the moment: white rage, homophobia and islamophobia are growing stronger. We cannot let this moment divide us, or let the right pit us against each other. This moment calls for us to show up even stronger and more unified.

There are three major defining factors of this moment: white rage and misogyny escalated by the presidential elections; extractive dig-burn-dump economies promoted by politicians; and rising militarism at home & abroad applauded by the electorate.

These growing norms will have long-term implications for Black, Latin@, Arab and Muslim peoples, Indigenous Peoples,  Asian & Pacific Islander, working class White folks, women and trans people... long after the next president is elected.

This July 2016, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ) is organizing a caravan from Cleveland to Philadelphia of 20-50 frontline community leaders from the US and Honduras. The caravan will begin in Cleveland on Thursday 7/21 at the closing of the Republican National Convention and end on Tuesday 7/26 with Justice for Berta Cáceres actions in Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention.

This is a call to action from communities of color and white folks to confront the growing acceptance and public condoning of racism and xenophobia; from women and trans people to reclaim feminisms for the grassroots; from communities living on the frontlines of polluting industries to build a new economy; from veterans and organized communities around the globe to end U.S. military intervention.

Our goal is to raise $95,000 to make this happen. Support the People's Caravan!
