In the last two weeks, millions have taken to the street in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless other Black people who have been killed at the hands of vigilantes or law enforcement.
The explosion of protest is in response to a pattern of killings, piled onto the deadly impacts of COVID-19 and four years of Trump. The demand is clear: to end police violence and to defund police — and to win a massive shift in resources into healthy, sustainable communities.
DC Jobs with Justice is joining the call for the SIX NINETEEN mobilization led by the Movement for Black Lives on Juneteenth weekend, June 19–21, 2020.
We know the cost of this inaction. It has cost the lives of our neighbors and loved ones. It has torn apart communities. We march in their memories. We say their names.
We look forward to marching with you this weekend.
