League members are keenly aware of the inexcusable treatment of Black and Latino people, and LGBTQ for the past 150 years and even longer.
We believe in the mission to make it right, make lives better, and not full of fear. While we have a national discussion of what should take place to improve lives and eliminate police violence, let us have open discourse with each other and not jump to conclusions. Let the goal be Freedom, Prosperity, and Happiness for All! Let Freedom Ring!
Yesterday Roseburg residents came together to celebrate our diversity, but more to call out the mistreatment of American citizens over years of cruelty. We support Black Lives Matter! We must learn more about the past those of color have had to endure just to live in the United States.
