In addition to the incredible contribution Dr. King made to the Civil Rights movement there are also many women who fought alongside him that are often forgotten. These women strongly influenced not only civil rights activism but other social justice movements, including feminism. 👊🏿❤️👊🏼 Say their names! #CivilRightsDay #mlkday #girlgaze

Here's to all the brave souls who stand defiantly in the face of oppression in all forms.

Civil Rights are Your Rights, Our Rights, Human Rights, Everyone’s Rights. Don’t let narrow minded folks take your rights away! #civilrights #civilrightsday #civilrightsday2018 #mlk #mlkday #civilrightsareyourrights

Dr. King and many other activists including women freedom fighters made incredible contributions to the civil rights movement. Today we honor them for paving the way for other social justice movements as well, including feminism. 👊🏿❤️👊🏼

We must also acknowledge that it is crucial to federally decriminalize cannabis as it has oppressed minorities for decades. Cannabis is not a gateway drug it’s the gateway to mass incarceration.
John Ehrlichmann, President Nixon’s domestic advisor states: “You want to know what this was really all about? The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
.
We must continue to fight for federal decriminalization of cannabis with the understanding that this is a civil rights issue. Otherwise we aren’t going to be able to create legislation around it that supports ALL people and ensures justice is served.
Ways to help:
1. Keep talking about these issues
2. Show up for your midterm elections!
3. Keep an eye out for town hall meetings in your community where legislation for cannabis is on the agenda.
Legalizing cannabis isn’t going to erase centuries of racism but we can’t begin to address racism in the US without legalizing cannabis. | #treefemmecollective #civilrightsday - #regrann

As we remember Dr. Martin Luther King today, we should reflect on how far we have come and how much further we need to go. Today is also celebrated as Civil Rights Day, and as such, we also recognize those who worked alongside Dr. King in hopes of achieving the dream he dreamed. #mlkday #civilrightsday #civilrights #drmartinlutherking #fightforjustice #fightforequality #fightforunity #fightforpeace #naacp #sncc #segregation #racism #blacks #whites #minorities #socialissues #legalissues #humanrights #lincolnuniversity #thelincolnian #luabj #masscomm
