Black Lives Matter Statement


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. This is a time to stand together and in an effort to continue the movement's momentum, we invite our supporters’ attention to ways they can advance local and national efforts, go to www.tinyurl.com/iowa-social-justice-directory
