A DAY OF POWERFUL BLACK PROGRAMMING
#BREATHEDAY #NOTUPFORDEBATE #BDAY
JOIN US ON SEPTEMBER 29TH FOR BREATHE DAY,
a day of unapologetically Black programming on the day of the first Presidential debate. Breathe Day is a time and place for discussing Black issues and how the Breathe Act will Defund the Police and create a future for all of us to thrive.
For too long, Black people have been forced to hold our breath.
We’ve held our breath for racial justice. For an end to police brutality. For community wellbeing and safety over the apparatus of white supremacists.
The wait is over.
On September 29th, we’re unveiling exclusive Breathe Act art, providing tools on how to have conversations about Defunding the Police, and collectively demanding Congress take action.
