Once again, people are rising up against racism and police brutality. Since we put out this statement just days ago, even more communities have rallied to sound the call: Black lives matter. And we have witnessed even more police violence as they have cracked down across the country.
We’re living through a pandemic that has forced a deeper realization of what it means to care for each other and for our communities. This is also what caring looks like — vibrant, relentless organizing and protest to protect lives, defend human rights, and stand up for Black communities.

Like you, MADRE and grassroots activists from Palestine to Brazil and beyond stand in solidarity with Black communities in the US demanding justice. As we all do our best to stay healthy and safe in this time of deep crisis, we can still find ways to show our dedication to human rights.
Thank you for your commitment.
