The Global Justice Center condemns the brutal extrajudicial killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We stand in solidarity with our allies and partners working to dismantle structural inequity and demand justice. We unequivocally denounce racism, white supremacy, police brutality, and violence against Black communities.
Black women have long led and continue to lead the fight for racial justice, which is why we are highlighting organizations founded and led by black women that center the experiences and voices of black women and girls in their work to advance justice, health, and rights.
Please join us in supporting and uplifting our sister organizations during this critical time.
