State sanctioned violence looks different in every single community of Color in the United States.
August 13, 2014 - While Sister Farah Tanis had a one on one conversation with the Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights at the United Nations in Geneva, Brother Carlos Garcia and Sister Theresa Martinez, and I talked about the parallels, similarities, and differences in how our racial/cultural/ethnic communities are resisting and responding to various forms of state sanctioned and personal violence the U.S.

The Black Women’s Blueprint delegation to the United Nations US #CERD (Committee on the Eradication of Racial Discrimination) Review had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Sybrina Fulton, Jahvaris Fulton, and their attorney Daryl Parks before the Civil Society consultation with the senior US Government Delegation to the United Nations in Geneva.
I can’t help but reflect upon the deeply painful and sobering irony that this photograph was taken at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 while another (not the first and unfortunately, not the last) literal racist, state sanctioned war on Black people was occurring in the United States.
#CERD #USHRN @BlackWomensBP Racialized state sanctioned violence perpetuated against Black and Brown male bodies; state sanctioned and intimate partner violence perpetuated against Black women and LGBTQ people; and punitive immigration laws are many of the issues we —Carlos Garcia (PUENTE Arizona), Ron Davis (The Jordan davis Foundation), Sybrina Fulton (The Trayvon Martin Foundation), Aishah Shahidah Simmons (BlackWomen’s Blueprint), Ejim Dike (US Human Rights Network) , and Chandra Bhatnagar (ACLU)— covered during a press briefing at the close of the U.S. #CERD Review at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
I am appreciative of both the opportunity and responsibility to represent #BlackWomensBlueprint
I am listening to and grappling with the some of the most egregious contradictions in the responses from the senior US government delegation during their #CERD (Committee on the Eradication of Racial Discrimination) Review at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
