We Are In The Midst Of Unprecedented Times

The last few months have been very difficult and frustrating, not just for our communities but for our nation.  Due to the pandemic, we were thrust into a situation that has left many wondering how to pick up the pieces and move forward in what will now be our “new normal.”

Sadly, now we face yet another challenging situation with the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. Even in these very dark hours we must rise up to the killings and brutality of Blacks.

We must rise up by continuing to protest peacefully, rise up by demonstrating peacefully, and rise up by registering any and all African Americans for this very critical upcoming election in November 2020.

We must rise up and make sure that no matter where you live, city or state, that you have candidates in place who will work for the good of your communities. Trust… it is most definitely the time to rise up and let your voice be heard.

Yes, we are in the midst of unprecedented times, but even in these trying times, let’s remember that we need to continue to prepare for Election 2020. The lives of the Black community may depend on it.
