Demanding A National Plan of Action for Racial Justice
The National Alliance for Racial Justice and Human Rights support the demands made by MXGM. “The MXGM report clearly illustrates that there is a human rights crisis in African American communities across the country where State and even non-State actors such as security guards and vigilantes can steal the lives of Black people with impunity,” according to Alliance member Jaribu Hill from the Mississippi Worker’s Center for Human Rights.
