Dismantle the System That Killed Breonna Taylor

We see, validate, make space for, and hold close our Black colleagues, network members, clients, and partners. You matter.

Keep in mind: Your Black team-members were just reminded their lives do not matter.

Justice was not served yesterday, because the white supremacist system which allows police to murder innocent Black people like Breonna Taylor, was intentionally designed to protect white people. “There is no justice in a system designed to shield from accountability those who killed Breonna Taylor and countless others.” (@yourrightscamp

At CLEVER, we’ve been doing the work of dismantling racist, white supremacist, and patriarchal systems. We will share more about that work soon. One thing we, as an agency, have agreed on is that we must notice, name, and dismantle systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, and other forms of oppression that have excluded and continue to exclude people from all aspects of our work. We must exist to make a social impact on the world.

As @dynastihunt reminds us, today, especially, we give space to Black womxn “to feel what you need to...and to not pretend that it’s all ok.” And we implore white people to hold that space.
