Black Lives Matter and we all must come together to put an end to anti-Blackness in our community. Systemic racism runs rampant in our social, political and educational structures and it is up to all of us to work to dismantle it. Al Exito stands with the Black Lives Matter movement in a spirit of unity, solidarity, and liberation.
