Thank you for standing on the right side of history, by supporting and contributing to #RiseUpOctober - STOP police terror! - Which Side Are You On?
Rise Up October was a genuine outpouring of outrage and determination at a crucial time...
It makes a HUGE difference when people like you give as much as they can, and then become part of challenging others to do the same. Would you please respond with your thoughts on why you donated? If you have been at any Rise Up October events, any short stories, statements, or photos would be much appreciated!
I'd like to share with you a Message from Cornel West and Carl Dix, October 24 2015:
Brothers and sisters, fellow resisters:
You are beautiful. You have straightened your backs and can inspire millions of others.
The spirit of Rise Up must go forward—— and that spirit needs to be made manifest in STRUGGLE and ORGANIZATION.
Be out there on November 22, the anniversary of Tamir Rice’s murder.
Be out there November 27, to actively boycott Black Friday.
Be out there December 3, one year after the cops who murdered Eric Garner were exonerated.
Be out there, making a powerful force of the voices of the relatives of those murdered by police.
Be out there, carrying forward the struggle to shut down Rikers Island.
And be there this next month, at organizing meetings of Rise Up.
POLICE MURDER AND TERROR MUST STOP!
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?
How can you be part of bringing this project into position to go even further? Who can you call in the next 24 hours & challenge to follow your lead, and contribute to this much-needed effort? This is the final day, and we still need $7,000!
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you; if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
