Statement in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

July 4, 2020
Splabman
Thanks to Seattle Civic Poet Jourdan Keith for tipping SPLAB off to this, which we present as our statement of solidarity with Black Lives Matter. See also our July 2017 statement: https://cascadiapoeticslab.org/about-splab/splab-board-statement-of-openness-and-inclusivity/

And see also our statement re: “freedom” in memory of Michael McClure who died 60 days ago:

McClure Action Philosophy

We find these statements to be essential when the President speaks as he did in South Dakota, July 3, 2020, doubling down on division and humanity’s worst tendencies. May the nightmare be over soon and all the nightmares he represents which BIPOC have been trying to tell everyone else for 500 years.
