Enough is Enough: Dismantling Systemic Racism

My Name is MoSoul. I am the Founder of From The Hood For The Hood;  a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to developing, empowering, and engaging young people and communities that are often overlooked, while also being a training catalyst for Social Justice and fighting against homelessness. As time would tell, I have now picked up the baton and I now stand before you as a leader within the movement  #BlackLivesMatter in Big Rapids, MI. Originally a few residents of Big Rapids, got together and put together a peaceful protest: Big Rapids Supports The Black Community but, sadly due to negative feedback and even DEATH THREATS they canceled the protest so I made the decision to pick up the baton and LEAD THE MOVEMENT. We successfully had a peaceful protest in Big Rapids on June 3rd, and another one led by Jordan Powers on June 6th.  We also had the pleasure of supporting the Belle Isle Freedom March on June 5th. This is only the beginning, I am currently organizing a few more protests across the State and potentially across the country to make sure that America knows that; ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. On top of that, we are working to establish community forums and town hall meetings within Big Rapids, MI, and other cities to have those conversations centered around race that makes us feel uneasy because we need those uneasy and uncomfortable conversations to establish change.  Our work will also include policy work, movement building, strengthening alliances, community self-care, creative engagement, BAILING OUT individuals who have been arrested due to protesting, Establishing Scholarship funds and fellowships to level the playing fields and bring equity to our black and brown college students; starting with Ferris State University. We need your support for materials and supplies, travel, and facilities costs related to actions, meetings, and our ongoing work. Please give what you can to support this MOVEMENT and encourage others to do the same. #BlackLivesMatter
