“As things be/come let’s destroy then we can destroy what we be/come let’s build what we become when we dream -Nikki Giovanni

Fighting can feel hopeless. It is exhausting. It is sad. It feels surreal to have to debate human rights of any kind. But when you fight with others, hope is realized as a force that you can channel into action and action into change. When my friends and I decided to go protesting for Justice for George Floyd, it was our first one. We were all very nervous about being prepared, what we might face and how we would ultimately have to take care of each other and hundreds of strangers. But the feeling we all felt when we arrived at the collective chanting, to the cracks in people’s voices, to the signs screaming for Black Lives Matter, it was soul shaking. Walking that protest I was able to feel the hurt and anger across people of all backgrounds, all in defense of countless black and brown lives lost to police brutality. I grew up in Brooklyn and I know many stories, I know many names, like Abner Louima and Amadou Diallo, I was a kid in the 90’s but I heard about it in the news and I saw the uproar in our communities. I grew up afraid of the NYPD. Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Philando Castile; these tragic murders and many more are embedded in so many hearts and minds.

"So when our people hit the streets to say Enough Is Enough, we knew we had to join them. Protesting may not be a part of your individual purpose, but it is a human right for a reason. We must rise up to be heard. We must stand up to be seen. We must fight in order to win. We must destroy to rebuild. This time reminds me of the Tarot Card, The Tower; it represents upheaval. We must often break down so that we can break through. Protesting has been a universal breakdown of that which has broken us, has broken what humanity is meant to be, for everyone. When we march we shake the foundation and we make room for new creations.“ - Leslieann Elle Santiago
