We will fight. We will not be silenced.
We stand with the Black community, and will not stop fighting until we are free of violent police, politicians, and fascists. Wit, Will & Witchcraft will now and always stand for what is right. And we will help amplify the voices and experiences of the Black people who need to be heard. We are here to listen, and here to learn.
We will work to provide as many resources as possible to help those in need. Don’t stop fighting. Stay safe. Abolish police.
Black Lives Matter. Always.
