Another Senseless Murder “For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other.” —Millard Fuller, Founder of Habitat for Humanity International We have been bombarded with stories about white police officers killing black men and boys. It seems like before one story can end, another one is becoming this week’s hashtag. #TrayvonMartin, #EricGarner, #MichaelBrown, #TamirRice, #EricHarris, and the list continues to grow. We continue to be vigilant and fight for our rights against the police. We protest with our hands up, mouths taped, and wearing shirts that say, “I Can’t Breathe.” This is the Civil Rights Movement for our generation, and I believe that we should continue on this path and let our voices be heard. 6 | Women’s Elevation Magazine
