“GOOD” white people: I know you’re out there.

We marched on the 58th anniversary of the March on Washington through the streets of Washington DC and cities across the country to demand the Federal government protect voting rights.

March On for Voting Rights Washington DC August 28, 2021

We marched last summer in all 50 states to demand the end of racism and police murder.

We -43% of white people- marched to the polls in November 2020 and got Joe Biden and Kamala Harris elected, and Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.

Now is not the time to rest. Now is the time to double down.

Racist white people are outworking us.

They are attacking our democracy, public health, public education, and the rule of law.

At the US Capitol on January 6th, 2021.

Across our country, introducing more than 400 voter suppression bills in 49 states.

In California trying to unseat our Governor who won by 3 million votes in 2018.

At school board meetings.

In the Kmart parking lot in Portland Oregon.

At the Miami airport.
