Louder, for the People in the Back

This is the exact spot where I was yesterday when the news was announced that the killing of an innocent black woman, in the privacy of her home, was not a crime.

And so now, louder, for the people in the back:

Black lives matter.

Women matter.

Both of these groups (and their intersectionality) are experiencing a disproportionate amount of death at the hands of violence.

I will continue to bear witness. To share truth. To shine a light where I can. And to stand for others when they can’t.
