The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Stephon Clark, and countless others lies in the hands of the white supremacist policies, systems, organizations, and individuals that actively work to suppress Black and Brown people. Throughout the history of the United States, Black Americans have continued to be disenfranchised by the systems of oppression built for and by oppressors. Mr. Floyd’s death is no different.
It is by design that homelessness in the Sacramento Region disproportionately impacts our Black and Brown communities. As millions of Americans continue to exercise their first amendment right to protest amidst the looming pandemic, we will continue to advocate for the liberty of our unhoused community and work to dismantle the systems that allow homelessness to occur. written by Janae Giles
