Dear friends in struggle,
We wanted to send our sincerest thank you to all of you who have been in the trenches these past weeks: whether you have protested in the streets or in your car, provided water and organized health teams, carried signs or whether you have contributed by donating financially or bringing material aid.
Huge thanks goes out to all who have shared notices of protests on social media; who have forwarded events to friends and to everyone who has volunteered during the long Marches and caravans.
There are so many ways that people have made this movement against racism and police terror stronger that it’s impossible to list all of them in a short note.
Just know that whatever role you have played it is deeply appreciated especially by the friends and loved ones of victims who have spent decades fighting for justice.
As Mary Washington, the mother of Joey Wilbon stated, “We have been carrying this fight for the last twenty years”.
This weekend we are temporarily taking a break from our own initiatives and supporting the actions of others. We wanted to make sure you had the information.
We will not give up fighting for justice until we win!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Peoples Power Assembly
