Eagle Medicine of the East teaches us to grow our wings so we can navigate strong winds with grace and wisdom. Eagle asks us to question how we can be of service. So we watch, we listen, and we act...we see the injustice, we hear the calls for self-examination.
Our silence is a form of violence & the winds of change are strong. Decide how you can help. We have the opportunity now to listen to the wisdom from Black Americans who have lived the violence for so many centuries, and we can and should follow their lead.
I am reflecting on my white privilege, and trying to educate myself and children, and support organizations that are leading the way on LONG overdue systematic change. I know that I can do more, and hope we will all do our part. Below are a couple of links to the organizations Campaign Zero and Black Lives Matter. Please donate.
Funds donated to Campaign Zero support the analysis of policing practices across the country, research to identify effective solutions to end police violence, technical assistance to organizers leading police accountability campaigns and the development of model legislation and advocacy to end police violence nationwide.
Fund the Movement Black Lives Matter, and support their ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever.
