SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH – VOTER REGISTRATION CAMPAIGN
TAMIR RICE: Say his name...
The 12-year-old Ohio youth was gunned down at a Cleveland public park while playing with a toy gun within 2 seconds after police arrived on the scene in 2014. No one was ever prosecuted. You can learn why here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LbCU3brYSvw
Say his name...
TAMIR would have turned 18 on June 25. He would be able to vote for president in November for the first time. TAMIR cannot. His voice was silenced. The fruit of citizenship that was his birthright denied, 6 years before he was old enough to vote.
Voter suppression takes many forms. Ask George Floyd. Ask Breonna Taylor. Ask Ahmaud Arbery.
Say THEIR names...
Their voices were silenced. They rest in power - through THEIR memory...and OUR agency. YOUR voice can still be heard. YOUR vote matters. YOUR vote can still empower.
Say THEIR names......when you vote on November 3.
