It's easy to sit outside of a process and criticize it. And no process is perfect. What is more difficult and requires more integrity is to actually do the work that CAJM's members and leaders are doing in our community. Some of our elected officials last night displayed cavalier attitudes towards our communities that we should be receiving with suspicion, not applause. As someone who was deeply involved in the (thorough and months-long) research process of the questions asked to elected officials last night, I was glad to see religious leaders in our community going to bat for youth in our community.
This event is not a power spectacle. It's not about who gets to hold the mic. But it is about who has actual power over what happens in our schools, our workplaces, and our neighborhoods. It is an avenue through which we have an opportunity as people living in Charleston to ask for accountability from the people who are making decisions about our lives. Everyone is invited into that process.
I LOVE Dellz.
