What is the Red Movement?
The Red Movement is a grassroots campaign that takes Black Lives Matter to the next level by showing ordinary people what they can do to fight social injustice.
What does that mean?
Black Lives Matter and the George Floyd tragedy are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to understanding, confronting, and dismantling social injustice, systemic racism, inequality, and exploitation in America and around the world.
Unfortunately, these problems are much deeper and widespread than police brutality or mass incarceration. …
In August 28, 1963 when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood confidently and shared his “I Have a Dream” speech with the world one part was noticeably absent. The strong black women who helped him get there. The strong black women who tirelessly worked in the background to make the movement possible.
Without these female pioneers, the civil rights movement would never have happened in the United States and history has ignored their contributions for far too long.
These remarkable female leaders propelled social justice forward as grassroots organizers, community activists, teachers, writers, social workers, and protesters often putting their…
George Floyd’s death brought in a new era and resurgence in the civil rights movement in America and unexpectedly around the world.
While thousands have marched, protested, and carried signs many on the sidelines have been asking, “What have the protesters actually accomplished?” The answer will give you hope for this country and renew your faith in how grassroots change can transform a nation.
Below is a list of changes and actions taken place because of the George Floyd and #BlackLivesMatter protesting, a sign that change must happen from the ground up for leaders to finally take notice.
The true story has been unfolding for the last 155 years and continues today.
No one imagined that 155 years after the end of the American Civil War, there would still be a debate on the exact date that slavery ended.
It was originally believed that when President Lincoln signed the famous Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st, 1863, the executive order called for and resulted in the release of all slaves.
That was a complete lie.
As the Civil War raged on, confederate states who had seceded from the Union ignored Lincoln’s executive order thereby allowing slavery to remain in…
On May 25, 2020 an innocent black man laid bleeding and dying on a cold dry cement floor in Minneapolis. No one at the time knew it, but his name was George Floyd, and his death would trigger unrest, rioting, and protests for civil rights this country had not seen for decades.
Just as Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on that fateful day 65 years ago, George Floyd’s journey would trigger a new civil rights movement not just in America but around the world.
Unlike the Rosa Parks incident, the world would have the chance to watch…
As we all began to see the light at the end of the dark COVID tunnel and a return to normal, millions began to wake up to what this pandemic really taught us as human beings and as a society.
Our lives prior to COVID in many ways were built on a cycle of endless consumerism that not only left us financially bankrupt and struggling but often spiritually empty as well.
Our materialistic shop till we drop 24/7 culture often felt overwhelming requiring money we didn’t have to impress people we didn’t necessarily like all while having disastrous consequences for…
While most of us remain perpetually glued to our T.V. and computer screens absorbing every new update regarding stay-at-home orders and the coronavirus pandemic, environmentalists are also stunned at how the world has changed almost overnight.
It turns out that while humans stay-at-home, the Earth has encountered a rare and unexpected chance to environmentally heal.
Stories have flooded the media on how air quality has dramatically improved in cities from Los Angeles to London while air pollution in India and China has plummeted for the first time in three decades.
Even the Himalayan Mountains are visible for the first time…
