White supremacy and anti-Black racism have long legacies. In the last few weeks we’ve heard about the most recent spate of murders and attempted murders of Black people striving to live their lives safely in the US, racist systems that prop up and protect White supremacy, and inflammatory rhetoric about those protesting injustice.
Purpose's mission is to fight for an open, just and habitable world. Right now that fight is more critical than ever, and the just world we want feels very far away. It's more important than ever that we show up for each other, our communities, and the movement of front line organizations doing the work of supporting communities, demanding better and holding lawmakers and leaders to account.
