The pledge of allegiance states that we as a country are "one nation, indivisible" yet our elected president Donald Trump has continuously introduced policies that are dividing us as a nation.

BLM: Stand Up, Fight Back: Superbowl LI Protest March

February 5, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 6:00 pm
Herman Park, 6001 Fannin
Houston, 77030 United States
+ Google Map

It is time for the city government of Houston to see how diverse we are. The grand claim was made that we are a "welcoming city," but the treatment of the local homeless community, gentrification, lack clarity on where our elected leaders stand on Trump's policies and of course the issue of anti Blackness need to be addressed.

We are not one big happy family until justice is extended to all!

WE WILL MARCH UP FANIN FROM HERMANN PARK TO NRG PARK. RAIN OR SHINE.
