justice


Random quote of the day:

“To ignore injustices such as the few we address in the film [You Can’t Hear Me] simply because they may not seem to affect you directly right now, is to leave yourself unprepared when their effects show up at your front door. That’s the awareness we want to continue to bring to light as we stand in solidarity with activists and the politicians who really are doing their work for the people.”

—Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Huffpost, May 2, 2017
