We are facing a pandemic of systemic oppression
On May 25 of 2020, George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis. A few days later, Iyad el-Hallak, a young autistic Palestinian man, was shot and killed by Israeli police in Jerusalem. These events have inspired people in the United States, Palestine/Israel and around the world to rise up against oppression and brutality. Sadly, these deaths are part of a long tradition of institutional racism and violence.
