Justice is a key organizational value at BICAS. As such, in response to the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, as well as the murders of countless Black lives in the United States, the BICAS Collective would like to take this moment to amplify the demands of Black-led organizers both locally and nationally for “acknowledgement and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black life at the hands of the police” as well as for “radical, sustainable solutions that affirm the prosperity of Black lives” (posted on the BLM website on May 30th, 2020). In addition, BICAS re-commits to examining our own organizational policies and practices in this vein.
Some Black-led initiatives where our Tucson community can send donations include:
Minneapolis-based Reclaim the Block
George Floyd Memorial Fund
Mass Liberation Arizona
