Lashtasy Lashes Stands Against Racial Injustice
The time is now and the time is always.
The death of George Floyd has shone a light on injustice within the black community. This inhumane and unsettling event goes far beyond police brutality, the underlying issue here is racism. Whether it is internalized racism, institutionalized racism, or structural racism — it exists and it is everywhere.
It took the death of another innocent black man to incite action on a large scale. Blacks have been oppressed since the beginning of time, viewed and made to be subservient, wrongfully convicted, robbed of a seat at so many important tables, and the targets of hate and violence.
Although we truly believe that the impactful outreach and action that we’ve seen since the death of George Floyd are long overdue, we want to urge the black community and our allies to keep pushing for justice.
For the month of June, 50% of Lashtasy Lashes proceeds will go to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, a legal civil rights organization that fights against racial injustice.
Change starts here and now. Even past the next few weeks, past the month of June, and past the next year, make it a part of your entire existence to stand up against injustice. Continue to contribute to the fight in any ways that you can — use your voice, donate, and educate others.
If we all stand within our power and act, we have the ability to create monumental change. Keep pushing.
