#SayHerName...at the Million People's March on Saturday in Newark

“Unless one lives and loves in the trenches, it is difficult to remember that the war against dehumanization is ceaseless.” –Audre Lorde

Sandra Bland...life to death.
David Rutherford has done a community service by posting a listing of 25 reasons for us to show up (and I say, SHOW OUT) at Saturday's Million People's March Against Police Brutality, Racial Injustice, and Economic Inequality. Click here for his post. The recent death in police custody of Sandra Bland (and countless other women of color) provides Reason #26 for us to protest and create an action plan to end the acts of violence perpetrated against people of color by systemic racism in the (in)justice system.  Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook know that this particular case has got me raging--we all need to show our rage.
