SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
END POLICE BRUTALITY.
LIBERATION AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
The support you have shown HandsUpUnited, Saint Louis, and Ferguson is awe inspiring.
With your help we've been able to establish a Tech Institute that allows us to build code and community with the next generation of socially and politically conscious, community driven techies. We've graduated 26 youth from our 2 course offerings and are looking to grow!
Our Books and Breakfast program has been running consecutively for 29 months and has been replicated in the US and internationally in 35 cities. We've fed over 1,000 people and put over 5,000 books in the hands of our community members; one measure to battle illiteracy and our failing St. Louis school system. We are feeding and educating the community around important political topics; past and present day, local and worldwide.
Freedom Flix creates discussion around social justice issues through film.
We will soon begin our Freedom Gangs (Women's + Men's circles) as a means of creating a space for a community that supports, engages, shares knowledge, strategizes, and fellowships together.
We want to cultivate dreams in our communities. Art is how we tell our stories.
In 2017, we will launch IOD (It's Ok to Dream) designed to provide opportunities for youth to dream through dance, music production, engineering, and photography.
We will remain active in the streets.
We will continue to uplift the names of those murdered by the state.
We will continue to work with coalitions on policy changes.
We will continue to fight for the liberation of our people.
We will not stop.
Stay tuned for membership opportunity announcements; expanding the team to expand our work.
We greatly appreciate your efforts, it enables us to do this necessary work. Please continue to support us and we will do the same.
Thank you and keep fighting...our lives depend on it. Love + Power.
Your comrades at HUU -- Rika T, T-Dubb-O, Tef Poe, Tara
