We continue to be outraged by the not guilty verdict in the trial of Lonnie Swartz for the murder of Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez. Our hearts were lifted by joining with hundreds of community members to shut down downtown Tucson for hours on Monday evening in defiance of the injustice of this verdict, and in solidarity with the family of Jose Antonio and all those murdered by state violence. Contemplating the likely white jury members who pushed for a not guilty verdict in this trial, we are reminded yet again of the urgency of organizing white people against white supremacy.
We have rescheduled our open meeting for this coming Monday, April 30th. We hope you can join us. We will be talking about our upcoming plans to start canvassing and engaging white communities in taking action for racial, economic and climate justice during this electoral cycle.
Please RSVP on Facebook here, bring a friend, and help us spread the word!
