Creating Real Change

I’m an optimist in that I believe real change is possible.

There’s a movement to make Juneteenth a Federal holiday.

At the end of this blog entry I’ll give the links to the Senate and House of Representatives.

You can send a message to your elected officials urging them to do this along with executing the Action Plan of Black Lives Matter.

I will make the analogy of riding a New York City bus. On the front panel above the window it reads:

Federal law prohibits standing in front of white line while bus is in motion.

I ask you: if a Federal law can be created about where to stand on a bus:

Why can’t we create Federal laws on police reform that go into effect in all 50 states?

I intend to send my elected leaders at the State and Washington level a copy of the Action Plan.

This is why I think change is possible:

Black Lives Matter have an Action Plan that when passed into law would create effective solutions.

This is the U.S. Senate website. This is the U.S. House of Representatives website.
