Today we honor the powerful legacy of Black women who have committed their lives to service. What tremendous vision, courage & fortitude it took to build the 1st Black sorority in 1908 at Howard University. Happy Founders Day to the incredible women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority!

This #KingDay Black Lives Matter pledges to honor Dr. King with our continued work. May it be a humble offering to his Spirit, to his beautiful struggle, and to the beloved community that we inherit.

Black people have always kept each other safe. As we enter these next few days with white supremacists attacks planned throughout the country, this doesn't change. We keep us safe.

Quoted @AtlantaJustice

The same crowd that was in DC on Tuesday, plans to be in Atlanta January 17th - 20th. Please help spread the word to our houseless comrades. This will be so dangerous for them.
Help them make a plan to be somewhere else.
@KeishaBottoms and @CityofAtlanta do something.

if white supremacists/proud boys/trump supporters come to the GA capitol, unhoused people will be especially vulnerable to attack. please donate to help shelter unhoused people from extreme weather and extremist violence next week!

We call on Congress to immediately impeach Donald Trump and fully remove him from office for his incitement of the white supremacist attempted coup.

We cannot denounce white supremacy and allow its endorsers to continue serving in our government.

We support our sister @CoriBush’s legislation that would remove all Representatives who incited the terrorist attack.

Quoted @JoeBiden

No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protestors yesterday that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol.

We all know that’s true — and it’s unacceptable.

Ok @JoeBiden! Gonna look for you to back up this tweet when you take office...

Police associations are aligned with those that staged yesterday’s coup at the Capitol. They are CLEAR that they want to take the country back. #StandWithGeorge
