iPhone : Happening today!

We rise in solidarity with #BlackWorkers they are often hired last, fired first.

Let’s #StrikeForBlackLives and show the world that we deserve more than has ever been provided to us.…

iPhone : 55 years ago today, we were beaten, tear gassed, and trampled by horses. I thought I saw death. I thought I was going to die. I dont know how I made it back, but I know we cannot rest. We cannot become weary. We must keep pushing and pulling and find a way to get in the way.

iPhone : For those of us who mourn John Lewis today, he would also want you to remember his friend Reverend C.T. Vivian. A fellow lion for justice who journeyed home to glory just hours before the Congressman. Together again now.

Twitter Web App : Rep John Lewis dedicated his entire life to service the freedom of Black people. Through non violent direct action, through community organizing, and through elected office. You will be missed. Rest in Power.

This generation will keep fighting, struggling and winning. ✊🏾

iPhone : #BlackLivesMatter movement was founded July 13, 2013, 7 years ago as result of the acquittal of the person who shot & killed my son,#TrayvonMartin. I am so appreciative to the phenomenal women who started it all #AliciaGarza, #PatrisseCullors, & #OpalTometi for their resilience!!

iPhone : Trayvon should still be alive. So should countless other Black people who have been murdered at the hands of police and vigilantes. We won’t stop fighting until justice is done. I’m honored to be the smallest part of this beautiful, vibrant, complex movement. 💕…

iPhone : 7 years of fighting, growing, loving and winning. Everyday we have shown up for Black Lives and we will continue to. Deep bow of gratitude to all the chapters and Black led groups showing up for Black Life. #BLM7YearsStrong
