Kansas City Latinos Join #BlackLivesMatter Protest Downtown Today
Politically, this is a local answer to this story that's evoking anger among minorities via social media and reminding middle-class white people that race relations in the U.S. can be more complicated than they ever imagined . . .
Latin gangs attack Black Chicago protesters in effort to assist police
This effort has the support of several NEXTGEN Latino leaders and hopes to serve as a sign of unity.
Check the premise:
The KC Latino community comes together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Voz KC is calling on our latino community leaders and fellow neighbors in all parts of the region to join us as we do our part to end police brutality and excessive use of force.
We march and stand alongside our black brothers and sisters because your fight is our fight, too.
With nuestra VOZ (our voices) we bring awareness to the racism and racial bias that exists within our community.
We demand justice for George Floyd and hundreds of others who've been in his shoes.
We ask that you wear orange on Friday for National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
