A Call for Cross-Racial Solidarity

Dear Friend,

Now, it’s more important than ever that we recognize how events over the past year have reinforced the interconnectedness of marginalized communities, including people of color, women, youth, LGBT people, lower-income people, immigrants, and undocumented residents. We all face the same growing threat of fear, othering and violence that was on full display on January 6 at the Capitol.
