#FreeJasmine: No Jail Time for Black Lives Matter Organizer Wrongfully Convicted of 'Lynching'

Finally, and this is the real reason I sent this out today. Jasmine Sanders, a Black Lives Matter organizer in Pasedena, CA has been charged with Felony Lynching!

This is DISGUSTING.

This is an insult and spits in the face to all those men, women and children who lost their lives through these vile acts of murder, rape, torture and being burned alive for decades. Keep in mind that not one of those perpetrators of true lynching has ever been brought to justice, not even when they have been identified and admitted to what they have done.

So I am asking you to please take action and sign this petition, if not for Jasmine so that we do not sugar coat, white wash, scapegoat or deny the true history of lynching. Click
here to sign.

With the utmost gratitude,

LaShawnda



LEST WE FORGET TRUE LYNCHING

   
      

      
     
      

 
    

 
      Yeah, I guess we are crazy! And I'm okay with that!

PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGY

I apologize if you are receiving this newsletter in error. A recent technical glitch required me to rebuild the database, which meant combining multiple email accounts, listserves and handwritten sign-in sheets. I have multiple emails without names attached.  As such, I am sure I missed a few as I tried to delete as many as possible, before it became kinda exhausting given there are hundreds upon hundreds of supporters. So if you are here and not by choice, I apologize. Please simply unsubscribe.
