Friday Thoughts: Speak Out & Register To Vote

I don’t even know where to begin this Friday after watching the horrific video of the senseless shooting of Jacob Blake by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin. I am outraged and disturbed.  Which is why today’s Friday thoughts are about speaking out and registering to vote.

Friday Thoughts

It feels complicit to stay silent. Say Their Names: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Jacob Blake. Please sign this petition to hold the cop’s responsible for shooting Jacob Blake, an unarmed man 7 times in the back: HERE!

 

 

We can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that America is deeply broken and our police system needs massive change. The fact we need to petition to hold cops accountable for shootings is outrageous.

 

 

How I feel pales in comparison to my Black & Brown brother & sisters. They bear the weight & reality of this police brutality.  Their mothers, daughters, sons, and brothers are the ones dying.  And it’s not just across the police, the BIPOC are experiencing racism infused at every level of our society.

 

 

We need to show up and be Allies to them. We need to speak out and vote! Please register to vote: HERE! The Everygirl also has a list of 10 resources to help encourage voter registration.

 

I wanted to share my friend Kourtney Pope’s personal essay about ‘Being a Black Woman in America“. Please give it a read and some thought this weekend.

 

Focusing on unlearning, learning, listening, and giving space to the BIPOC Community.

 

Stay safe and healthy! ♥

 

Xo,
