Dominique Alexander, The Founder of Next Generation Action Network has planned for another night of peaceful protest in Downtown Dallas. The group is comprised of social justice activist that support these protests for justice, peace, and the recent election. The NGAN group posted this on their event page regarding the protest.
As we wrap our minds around this failed attempt at democracy that we as a country have witnessed in this election, and brace ourselves as Americans for a new Republican commander-in-chief with a majority Republican House and Senate; we are even more strengthened in our resolve to Fight. Most everything out of the Trump campaign has been divisive and contrary to those values written in the U.S. Constitution.
When human rights, social justice, and common decency is put on the back burner for bigotry and hate as we have witnessed as citizens of the United States of America we have no other choice but to rebel. African Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, women, disabled Americans, LGBTQ, Veterans, the poor, and the displaced that make up most this country must no longer be silent. This is NOT a protest it is a Rallying cry to resist ANY force that threatens our unity and our progression into a more unified, dignified, and economically stable society.
The dangers of remaining silent are written in history as we have all at least heard of the “Great” America that he wishes to bring back if not experienced it first-hand. It is our duty to practice civil disobedience and resist the direction this country is headed in with this unqualified backwards thinking President Elect that is exposing the need for swift action and opposition. Join us Friday night at Main Street Garden
The protest starts at 1902 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201 and will circle around Downtown Dallas. It begins at 7pm and ends roughly at 9pm.
