Beloved UUCB Family,
In my continuing efforts to bring you timely information, today I am sharing more ways to engage with anti-oppression work. Read on to find Things to Do this week to support BIPOC (Black Indigenous People Of Color) organizations. I also included ways to make a difference close to home by fighting for Aurora resident, Elijah McClain, and his family. To learn more about Elijah, click on his name in the blog post.
Finally, there is a thoughtful suggestion from the ABQAbolition Bookclub on becoming a penpal with someone who is incarcerated. In a time when the pandemic is keeping us apart physically, it is a chance to really connect to someone while also expanding our repertoire of anti-oppression work. Find it in the Something to Think About section.
Things to Do this week:
Black Visions Collective: A Black, Trans, and Queer-led social justice organization that is driven to end systemic racism.
The Bail Project: An organization that provides free bail assistance, reunites families, and restores the presumption of innocence.
Campaign Zero: An organization that collects and analyzes data on policing practices in order to end police violence.
Demand justice for Elijah McClain
