Standing in Solidarity

Here at JCCI, we are just as outraged and anguished by the recent incidents throughout the nation. After the death of George Floyd, homes and streets were set ablaze in some areas, blurring the purpose of what we are peacefully protesting for.

Admittedly, it may be true that one may forget more than they remember, hence the idea that history repeats itself. Novels by various authors as Richard Wright, Toni Morrison, and James Baldwin, poems by Langston Hughes, and speeches by Martin Luther King Jr. ring true more than ever even today, and we can all learn from them. We must take this time to continue remembering what we are fighting for.

Black lives matter: it is integral to not coin this as a mere catch phrase, but actually from your heart believe in what it is telling you in your life. This is especially a time to learn, to stand up for human rights, to know they are one of us, and realize that until black lives matter, none of ours will. As an organization deeply rooted in civic relations, we will strive to work together with our communities to seek a better future for all of us.
