Day 15 - First Steps: Watch
"I don't have any reason of believing..."
James Baldwin, 1965
Baldwin knew that having laws on the books, bills passed, or amendments added to the Constitution will not be enough to guarantee equality and equity under the law. The legacy of racism in this country demands that we push for accountability, oversight, and limitation on those who would wield the gun in the name of justice and peace.
Watch your local police, and let them know that you care about equity and justice in your community. Call your local department to ask about serving on a civilian oversight committee or joining neighborhood meetings with police.
