Veterans For Black Lives

George Floyd’s death on May 25th was not new to the long history of police brutality disproportionate to Black people and communities of color. The ability to record video and share it broadly on social media allowed the world to witness the cruelty and disregard for human life that plays out so frequently but often times goes undocumented. It was the final straw to break in a long series of police violence and hate crime against black lives.

We have made a strong call for our military and National Guard to #StanddownForBlackLives

Since then we are receiving calls from service members looking for options, resources, advice and encouragement to deny orders to mobilize against their own communities. We are in the early stages of organizing peer support advocates and trying to build out our network of educators.
