Freedom Network USA stands in solidarity with human rights activists around the world. Black Lives Matter. We are outraged and angered by the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others.
Systemic racism, oppression, and discrimination in the US perpetuate violence and exploitation. For too long, the United States has built a system designed to abuse and exploit Black and Brown bodies, LGBTQIA+ bodies, immigrant bodies. We must engage in an equally systemic, sustained, and determined effort to tear down these systems of inequality. Today, and everyday, we recommit to this shared struggle.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
