INVITATION: 6:30pm discussion today “End Prejudice and Racism Deaths”

Over 1000 people are killed by police every year. It shouldn't take nationwide rallies and marches to get justice for them.

Hi Friend,

"You can't walk while black. You can't jog while black. You can't drive while black. And... you can't sleep while you are black"

America has had enough. It is time we all stood together and said, "No more."
How can we have an America that believes in justice for all when we have such blatant prejudice?

No more precious American lives tragically murdered and lost every year.
No more children separated from their fathers ….forever.
It is time we changed it...once and forever  
Let us find answers together. 

Please join me today for an important discussion on how each and every one of us can make a real difference in changing the systemic racism that has fomented in our society since the first slaves were brought here four hundred years ago.

AGENDA: End Prejudice and Racism Deaths.
WHEN: Today, Thursday, June 4th 6:30pm-7:30pm
RSVP: https://rishikumar.com/blacklivesmatter
A panel discussion with:

  • Councilmember Jed Leno, Claremont CA - 

  • Former Undersheriff, Former Captain John Hirokawa 

  • Former Vice Mayor  of Sunnyvale,  Former Police Officer  Jim Davis

Ahmaud Arbery was gunned down while on a jog in Georgia. Breonna Taylor was shot by Louisville police while asleep in her own bed. Tony McDade was asked to not move, he didn't move, and he was still shot. And we all know what happened to George Floyd.

Racial injustice, the systemic issues and disparities that exist in our society that also cause inequality must be addressed now and with a real sense of urgency. What is happening around us is not just civil unrest but an expression of grief and anger over the needless deaths over hundreds of years.  The violence has to stop but we have to express our grief and find answers out of this mess America is in.

Our elected leaders have failed us for decades now, in their inability to put an end to this. We need to be leading the charge and demanding massive institutional reforms of police departments.

If we don't do something now, none of us will escape prejudice and our communities will continue to pay the price and bear the consequences. We have to purge this plague of violence from the world. Police brutality of American citizens is unacceptable and must not be tolerated by politicians who, year after year, turn a blind eye.

The time to unlearn hatred is now and the cultural shift from prejudice to love. This is overdue and we should stop breathing till we do that.

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "A riot is the language of the unheard." Violence must never be condoned, but leaders must listen to the voices of the people.

We need new leadership, and we need to take action NOW.
Here is a compilation of anti-racism resources and organizations you can donate.
Please review and act.

 "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
