March for Black Lives with Amani Williams
I cannot think of a more important discussion to currently engage in than one that underscores the imperativeness of racial justice and racial equality. It is my honour to have Amani Williams join me as my guest this Friday on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald! Amani Williams unfortunately knows more than a thing or two about racial injustice, racial inequality and police brutality. Super inspired and immensely appreciative to learn more about Amani and her organization, MARCH FOR BLACK LIVES! A NOT-TO-BE-MISSED SHOW on C-Suite Radio / C-Suite Network Host Page!! Amani Williams is the Founder of the non-profit organization March for Black Lives. This organization was created to maintain the focus on the anti-racism movement to create a platform for many oppressed voices. The mission statement is, “To Rebuild the black community through policy reform and educating the public.” Amani founded this movement in response to the brutal killing of George Floyd. As someone who has personally almost lost a family member to police brutality, George was the last straw for Amani. Amani wanted to do more than just post her frustrations online to her friends. She wanted to look in the eyes of those who cared while she spoke with the purpose of making a bigger impact. As a young black woman, Amani has experienced many injustices and much discrimination from childhood; following her into adulthood. Amani hopes through her movement, she can keep the urgency spotlight on anti-black racism while also creating a judgement free zone whereby those who are not as aware of the issues; can gather to learn more. Through her rallies and marches, Amani aims to educate the public of the many black victims of police brutality which goes unnoticed. Amani also focuses on educating the public about Black individuals and their unique experiences, petitions to sign, highlighting the unjust systems in place while also holding those in positions of power; accountable. March for Black Lives has been operational for three months to date. Amani has hosted three rallies thus far in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. These events have worked to highlight the continuous injustice on all facets of the marginalized communities lives through police treatment, the justice system, schools, work and in everyday life. Amani Williams moderates a Facebook page with many local community members called, “MARCH FOR BLACK LIVES HAMILTON” where she continues to maintain the momentum post scheduled marching events by informing the group of circulated petitions, numbers in which to call, emails to send as well as stories of the ongoing injustices in both America and Canada. Amani believes it is crucial to keep the momentum alive both on the streets via marching and also with a consistent online presence. Amani also manages an Instagram page – @march4blacklives where she networks with local black activists and leaders so as to support and to promote their movements as well. Photos from past marches are also often shared on both the Facebook and the Instagram pages, which captures the true energy experienced by those marching. These conversations dove into topics such as recent injustices, white supremacy, non-black allyship, systematic racism and much more. Updates on the development, future plans and upcoming events for March for Black Lives can be found on Facebook and Instagram. A website for the organization will soon be released and made available. In the interim, for anyone who is not connected to social media, Amani is accessible through email at firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries.
Uplifting you to fear less and to live more!
