As the world watches on holding its breath -- there are signs everywhere of events unfolding. The pandemic was but a catalyst of an existing problem.

Leadership and community peer support is needed now more than ever. Sadly the leaders cannot be counted on to do the right thing. The 'solution' of adding more police rather than addressing the actual problems isn't anywhere near an effective salve for the situation.

Getting needs met, caring for vulnerable communities, protecting, healing, feeding, caring; is going to need to come from already stretched grassroots sources. It will take more than even time/money donations.
