I understand the frustration folk’s have with the political system. Far too long we’ve deferred to a two party system that has use Black lives as political fodder at best, and has exploited and marginalized us since it’s inception. I think our voting power is most realized in the local elections. We have, and can continue to, push candidates on their agendas. Whatever gains we have made on the national stage is because of the organizing work. A part of continuing this work, for me, includes voting for the landscape we want to do the work.
