White Supremacy Has Got To Go

People of Color have been living with the consequences of White Supremacy since the founding of this country. We started with the Pickett Bridge as a symbol of the not so hidden history of White Supremacy in Bellingham and Whatcom County. We make a continued effort to identify and call out more symbols of violence and white supremacy, in our community to make it safer for all.

When we speak about a just transition to a new economy we also have to include a just transition from ideologies that promote hate against targeted groups based on race, gender and/or religion. These symbols of white supremacy must be pointed out and transformed into symbols of progress and opportunity for all.

We are calling on our community to join us to be in solidarity with People of Color and especially in this political moment to follow the lead of #blacklivesmatter to call to an end of sanctioned and unsanctioned violence towards black and brown people NOW.
