GOOD TROUBLE

 

UPDATE: See Fri 9/11 Calendar event

HOW WHITE ALLIES CAN SUPPORT MBL ON POLICING & JUSTICE ISSUES

“My philosophy is simple: when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, say something. Do something about it. Get in trouble. Good trouble,”    

-John Lewis


Bear with us – there’s A LOT going on between “The Home Stretch” activities and getting up to speed on where we want to go with the above initiative. We need to research, educate, and examine our feelings surrounding these issues so that when immediate action is required, ideally, we are ready and equipped to make an impact.

However, there will also be things which are going to come up that will be time sensitive. We may not be ready for Primetime, but we’ll be posting those ACTION ITEMS here.

Please bookmark this page. Thank you.
