An Announcement From Acting Executive Director Jon Stout
Friends, Free Speech TV mourns George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others cut down by institutional racism.
We stand today with those who cry “no justice, no peace.”
52 years ago, the Kerner Report concluded: “Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white–separate and unequal.”
Today, brutality by police and vigilantes is matched by policy violence.
Poverty, lack of healthcare, unequal education and environmental degradation also kill–their victims too often loved ones in communities of color.
As MLK observed, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” Free Speech TV is committed to hearing the cries of those suffering and to amplifying their pleas.
Say their names. Demand accountability. Fight for justice. Stay safe. We love you.
