Sharing What it was like Protesting
“Protesting for me gave me mixed emotions. It was amazing to see the outpouring of support from so many other people, races, cultures. It was great to know that there were so many of us that cared. It feels amazing to be a black woman in such a space. However, it made me angry that in this day and age we even have to do this, it made me sad to think about all of the lives lost. My heart was so heavy thinking about the people that think we are wrong for standing up for our selves and others. The people that labeled all of us to be unruly individuals. It is always an emotionally heavy experience.” - Tonya E.
