Title: All Power to the People: The Fight for Our Liberation Must Continue
Description: Minnesota has now become the epicenter of the fight for racial justice, freedom, equity, and equality. For many years, we have fought for our voices to be heard and our humanity to be recognized.
When George Floyd was brutally killed on May 25, 2020 by Minneapolis Police, many across the world stopped, took notice, and joined us in our rallying cry for justice. Although some changes have taken place in Minnesota and nationally, there is still a great deal of work to do. This is not the time to grow weary or to give up. To the contrary, this is our time to rise up and to continue to demand the changes that we want to see.
