TO THE VICTIMS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THE WAUKESHA COMMUNITY
The travesty which occurred during the Christmas Parade in Waukesha on Sunday, November 21, 2021, brings sincere grief to our Milwaukee Branch NAACP Executive Committee and Membership. We also lament for each family member who lost a loved one and/or suffered injury.
Across the nation our 1st Amendment Constitutional Rights are being impacted by acts of violence threatening peaceful assemblies.
We must remain alert and be ready to alert others in our communities of any dangers we perceive daily.
TO THE VICTIMS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THE KENOSHA COMMUNITY
The Friday, November 19, 2021, verdict handed down on behalf of Kyle Rittenhouse mpacts the Community and social justice throughout the United States of America. It also impacts our constitutional 1st Amendment Rights.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated that “injustice anywhere affects justice everywhere.” That statement is alive today in living color.
The Milwaukee Branch NAACP stands by and supports our NAACP National President’s Statement that “this verdict is a reminder of the treacherous role that white supremacy and privilege play within our justice system. In the midst to this disappointing verdict, we must continue to work to ensure that those who seek to harm progress do not find refuge for their illicit acts in a system meant to protect victims.”
Always Fighting Forward,
Clarence P. Nicholas
