In light of recent events, it has been made evident that we must still declare that Black Lives Matter and Black Power Matters. Even after months of demonstration in 2020, unarmed, non-threatening Black people are still killed by law enforcement, on camera for the world to see. Even with clear, video evidence, there is still no justice, accountability, or consequence. We have unfinished business and we still have work to do. We need JUSTICE for Casey, Andre, Daunte, Julius, Henry,…
