#KCLACSCARES

Like so many of you, we are emotionally exhausted by the recurring theme of state sanctioned killing on Black bodies under white supremacy.

How many more Floyds must die before we know justice? The work of dismantling the illegality of being Black cannot rest solely in our hands.

For the past few days the committee has been pooling our resources to create an initiative to not only support our members but to encourage all of us to inform, act and support our community. #KCLACSCARES will be up tonight and we hope it brings you all to a better place of understanding however with that education we hope you act. Our community is under fire and we must band together so we hope you continue to share the information and encourage participation. We hope to support you and urge you support each other. Stay safe and as Dr King said “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

-the KCL ACS committee
