VotePlus10 CEO: 7 Actions for George Floyd to End Police Violence All Here.
Like many, Jarrod and I feel a tremendous amount of grief, frustration and anger from the incomprehensible homicide of George Floyd. Sadly, the loss of George Floyd is part of a long history of chronic pain and injustice in our society, felt by so many, particularly people of color. When is enough really enough?
When does the pain of the status quo become so unbearable for so many that we are all able to come together and shine a light so bright that it is impossible to turn a blind eye any longer and return to a status quo that isn’t working for so many? What is it going to take to allow every human to feel heard, respected and empowered to live the life we all want to live.
Jarrod and I are not the experts in the area of social transformation. The color of our skin and our gender will prevent us from ever fully understanding the reality so many live with every day. All we can do is try our hardest to be fair, kind, understanding, respectful and take meaningful actions. There are amazing issue leaders and organizations setting the example and need help amplifying their voice and getting us all to the point where we can together say, no more.
The VotePlus10 team has worked tirelessly to bring you simple actions from leading organizations and subject matter experts. You can take action right now to have a significant impact and add your voice to millions of others shining a light on racial injustice.
Please take action now and share far and wide for everyone to take these simple and meaningful actions today! We will be adding more action from some of the groups we are working with and issue thought leaders. If you have suggested actions for an issue leader or website please share with us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Every day we must take it upon ourselves to be the change we wish to see in the world. Please take 5 minutes right now and be the change today!
Ken, Jarrod & the rest of the VotePlus10 Team
