Town Hall with GLP ~ #TheFight

If you have never heard of the Grassroots Law Project, I want to invite you to learn more about them, and I also would ask that you share this email with your followers as well. I welcome reblogs and good conversations about the current events and political unrest in our countries, mainly in the U.S.

GLP was founded by Shaun King, a political ally for minority folks, organizer, and activist with on-the-ground training in fighting the divide of the United States. You can read more about the project, HERE.

Grassroots is a great organization that helps so many people, and the town hall we had last night was talking about some of the neglects that we have been suffering from the White House not fulfilling promises.

Just a bit ago I got an email shared with me that President Biden would be issuing a policing order on George Floyd’s murder anniversary. Why did it take so long to get this kind of action on the table? It has been two years since he was murdered by Derek Chauvin, and other acts/legislation have not been taken seriously. Don’t get me wrong, okay. I am glad Biden is doing this policing order that will change use of force policies with law enforcement, but it’s taken half his administration time to get it done.

I made a promise to the team of GLP last night to commit to three years of action. I intend to keep that promise, so here I am talking to you all.

  1. I need at least five people, between my followers and your followers, to go and fill out this form: The Greatest Threat
  2. If you are able to, please donate to the project. GLP is transparent on how their donations are used and implemented to create change in the world, and you will also have a voice in how funds are used when you are involved with the project team. If you are unable to commit to a monthly donation, it’s okay. I know some folks are better off financially than other, and that will never be held against you or judged. I will never know if you donate or not, unless you decide to tell me.
  3. Step 3 comes after a donation, but it can be any monthly amount. I chose to donate $1 monthly for now (I plan to go to $10 when I get paid this month).This action will get you invited to a private team to work on issues in the sophisticated plan that Grassroots Law has drawn up.

If this feels like a solicitation, it kind of is, but it’s an actionable solicitation that is important and dire in a world that embraces oppression and violence.

Join me in fighting the good fight with 3 years of action dedicated to fighting for change and developing an energized team with outstanding organization that will gain influence in our government. Someone has to say something or organize to compete with opposing views, so we need to be the voice of the majority of the American people who want to see white supremacy squashed.

In solidarity,

Amy
