One Struggle KC
We stand with Ferguson and oppressed communities everywhere when we say "One Struggle!" Recognizing that there is Una Lucha, One Struggle KC aims to engage the Kansas City community by beginning a much-needed conversation discussing how all oppression is linked. The Ferguson uprising occurred because of years of anti-Black law enforcement violence. That same violence is inflicted upon communities of color and poor communities in the Kansas City area and beyond. Disproportionate policing in communities of color and poor communities has led to an unprecedented incarceration rate of members of those communities, which feeds the Prison Industrial Complex (including immigration detention centers) that profits off the backs of Black and Brown communities.
This must end! But we must be the ones who end it! And we can only end it by building solidarity among the affected communities. No longer will we stand by while a few profit off the misery of our communities. Our struggles are distinct, but they are linked. WE are connected.
There is but One Struggle - the one for Liberation from state oppression! Join us.
