The events in Charlottesville are not anomaly; They are happening all over America. In cities like Durham, Tampa and New Orleans, people are organizing to take down racist monuments. Symbols of white supremacy take different forms; For some it is a monument, for others it’s street name or campus building. For many it is an institution that continues to inflict harm on their people.

Join us in action Saturday Aug. 19th. We will continue to focus our attention on the many institutions that maintain white supremacy. Visit out site to either plan or take action Saturday.

Post or find an action near you today.

Challenge yourself to use your imagination and consider all the symbols and institutions of white supremacy:

A corporate headquarters
A local police union
A campus building
A local politician who has yet to cut ties with the Trump / White Supremacist project,
And for those close enough, the White House.

We’re calling everyone to be bold and publicly choose to side in this fight. Thank you for joining us in opposition to white supremacy and state violence. Let’s tear down systems of hate and build a world we believe in.

Onward,

Movement for Black Lives
