We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: Republicans are furious that we showed up and showed out in the last election — so much so that they’re doing everything in their power to retaliate by undermining all of our hard work.

We’ve seen white supremacist legislators aid the folks who staged an attempted coup on the Capitol go with no repercussions, we’ve seen them try to remove critical race theory from our schools, we’ve even seen them do all they can to impose voting restrictions to tarnishing our democracy and what it’s supposed to be.

But we can’t let that discourage us. We have to come back larger, stronger, and even more powerful in order to elect more lawmakers who believe and advocate for the total liberation of Black people.

If you thought we had a lot on the line in 2020, think again — the elections coming up are just as important — if not more. Elections for state lawmakers, city councils, school boards, and more are happening all over the country. These are the people who will have a direct say on the things that directly impact the future of Black lives like police budgets, pauses on evictions, and more.
