We DEMAND:
-equal representation for: women, people of color, the poor and homeless, the LBGT community and the disabled.
-an end to racial profiling
-transparency and accountability
-the funding of schools, not jails or war
AND WE DEMAND JUSTICE!

Staying contained and silent must end. It is time for American civil societies to rise up, in SOLIDARITY, and express our outrage for the dominating modes of power that enable racism, inequality, and impunity. We must come together in order to resist the complacency and complicity that allows these injustices to persist.
WE ARE DONE BEING SILENT!

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
-Martin Niemöller
