64 Day Campaign Week Three Highlight: Malcolm X Grassroots Movement

ABOUT

The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is an organization of Afrikans in America/New Afrikans whose mission is to defend the human rights of our people and promote self-determination in our community by any means necessary!

HIGHLIGHT

The Every 36 Hours Campaign seeks to stop the extrajudicial killing of people of African descent by various divisions of the government, particularly the police, by helping to stimulate a mass movement that will force the Federal government to create and enforce a National Plan of Action for Racial Justice that will address extrajudicial killings and many other problems stemming from institutional and systemic racism, such as racial profiling, mass incarceration, mass unemployment, and education and health disparities. To accomplish this goal MXGM is working in alliance with local and national allies like the CERD Task Force of USHRN and the National Alliance for Racial Justice and Human Rights. The cornerstone of this campaign is the Every 36 Hours Report.
