Raleigh, North Carolina
Great turnout of many groups and organizations showing solidarity and unity. Carolina Peace Center was honored to be part of such a prestigious march. This is an amazing symbolic and uplifting event that takes place every year. What we take from this and how we use it is what is important. Two points.
1) Unity is important and that means supporting others especially who are subject to hateful and racist policies.
2) We all need to realize that we have lot of power if utilized wisely and strategically then it can have a meaningful impact. Speak up. Stand up. Show up. Learn from the mistakes of the past and focus on policies and lawmakers who are behind destructive policies. Think institutions.
