Both a heart-wrenching celestial tale and a socio-theological treatise, Jesus and Trayvon searches the depths of understanding of Black Men and their historical and current relationship to Christianity.
What do you do when you feel like marching or attending is not enough? You seek radical justice. During this workshop, you will learn how everyone of us have a divine calling to be involved in bringing radical justice to the world.
Radical Justice: When Marching Is Not Enough: A 5 Day Workshop hosted by BLM-SAV.
Includes Dinner/Workbook/Audio CD.
We are sending this letter out to our friends, members, and supporters as we are seeking financial support for the work during this time of 6 weeks of protests.
As you may know, these protests were organized in response to the death of Heather Heyer and the response of Donald Trump. We decided that inaction was too costly and therefore we decided to move forward with our planning to confront racial injustice both nationally and locally.
During our first week of protest, we have been able to speak out on the Chatham County Jail conditions and have been contacted by numerous Savannah residents affected. We have also secured free legal counsel for cases of extreme abuse and loss.
This work has not been without its challenges. Members have been denied housing, had to stay in shelters to do their work, and received threats. But we are undeterred in our work.
Our financial needs are these: 1. to be able to secure short-term housing for members and supporters who come from out of town 2. To pay our admin and support staff. 3. Travel costs for our legal support team coming from South Carolina.
Thank you for your willingness to help during this time.
NOW IS A TIME TO ACT, AND KEEPING ACTING
Because of the dangerous racism that is being spewed from the White House, i.e. Donald Trump, Social Justice groups in Savannah will unite for a time of 6 week long protest against racism in Savannah. It is our goal, that our incessant advocacy during this time, that we can be a model for other cities.
Our goal? To inspire a national wide continual protest against racism on EVERY LEVEL until Donald Trump is impeached.
DONATE TO THIS CAUSE
Starting in September, we will undertake this huge endeavor and we need all the support we can get. Your support will allow us to:
1. Provide Housing and Lodging to other BLM Leaders who come to support us.
2. Help provide food for protesters who stay out for long periods of time.
3. To help attain legal counsel should any issues arise with our protest.
4. To provide bail money for those leaders who are unjustly arrested for their protest.
