The irony of setting a curfew to keep Black folks in the house where they also aren't safe is beyond wild to me. (#BreonnaTaylor, #AtatianaJefferson, #BothamJean, #AiyanaStanleyJones, etc.)

@CivRightsCorps @equalityAlec @iGiveYouMoore @AtxJustice Thanks for such an excellent session today @equalityAlec. I just purchased "Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System" (https://thenewpress.com/books/usual-cruelty) and look forward to learning more about the reforms you touched on today.

📢Tomorrow, join our founder @equalityalec and @iGiveYouMoore co-founder of @AtxJustice to discuss ways we can divest from punishment and invest in our communities.

An intimate account of legendary U.S. Representative John Lewis’ life, legacy and more than 60 years of extraordinary activism — from the bold teenager on the front lines of the Civil movement to the legislative powerhouse he was throughout his career. After Lewis petitioned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to help integrate a segregated school in his hometown of Troy, Alabama, King sent “the boy from Troy” a round trip bus ticket to meet with him. From that meeting onward, Lewis became one of King’s closest allies. He organized Freedom Rides that left him bloodied or jailed, and stood at the front lines in the historic marches on Washington and Selma. He never lost the spirit of the “boy from Troy” and called on his fellow Americans to get into “good trouble” until his passing on July 17, 2020.

There will be snacks and concessions available.
