Communities around the the World are filled with good people living in fear. Enough is enough. We demand more empathy, more accountability, more opportunity, more compassion, more dignity, more power and more opportunity for all. We demand healthier communities, which means more from each other. The time has come to illuminate our resilience and to take back our communities and our hope. Together we must lift our voices, assert our power, be resilient, identify solutions and work together to MANIFEST:JUSTICE. Together we will build a more just future.
