#ChikesiaClemons was assaulted & violated by the Saraland Police on April 28 in an Alabama @WaffleHouse. She was then arrested and charged for her own assault. Today, Saraland Municipal Court Judge Mark Erwin found her guilty on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
We are dismayed, but not surprised, by yet another verdict that shows just how little Black lives and Black dignity matter in the United States. We are outraged at the consistent state-sanctioned abuse of Black women in this country.
From police abuse to reproductive injustice, acts of state violence continue to deny Black women the right to bodily autonomy, respect, and dignity.
Black women matter. We will keep striving to build a world where Black women are free and safe. Anything less is unacceptable.
#ChikesiaClemons was convicted for her own assault, punished for surviving police violence. We come together as women to demand @WaffleHouse apologize to her and pressure the court to vacate her conviction.

Sign this petition. Demand #JusticeForChikesia

We were planning to shut down the Capitol Building but the authorities were so scared of this #WomensWave that they shut it down for us.

1000+ women, survivors, and allies have gathered in the Hart Senate Building.
Every hallway. Every floor.

#CancelKanavaugh #BelieveSurvivors
The entire building is echoing with chants of “BELIEVE SURVIVORS”
We believe ALL survivors.

Let’s be clear about what this Executive Order does: Instead of imprisoning children in separate internment camps away from their parents, this administration will now imprison children in the same internment camps as their parents.
The Executive Order @realDonaldTrump just signed does nothing to end the “zero-tolerance policy” that automatically criminalizes any and all immigrants who cross the border without legal papers, including those seeking asylum.

It does nothing to end the imprisonment of children.
Children locked in “tender age” prison camps will still be locked in camps. Family detention camps.

Here's the deal:

@realDonaldTrump is likely to end #DACA on Tuesday, endangering the lives of 800,000 young people. A square with a blue background and off-white text reads
If you marched on January 21st, this is a test of our commitment to intersectionality.

We need you to do these 5 things NOW to #DefendDACA
Tweet at these 9 AGs who are threatening to sue the federal gov't to end #DACA.
