Black Lives Matter - Loren Jones

 

“In the words of Kena Dijiba, ‘We all have a duty to continue the fight when the dust settles. What we crave more than ever is societal reform, which will seep into how police officers confront personal biases.’ For too long, Black people have been suffering under a society that thrives off of their oppression, that teaches their children that they are unworthy or undesirable, and that allows them to be senselessly murdered by the people who have taken an oath to protect and serve. This reality will only begin to deteriorate when EVERYONE makes an active commitment to being anti-racist and to fighting for societal reform. Complacency is not an option. Black Lives Matter.” –Loren Jones ’21
