I will start the “Walk 2 DC” Thursday, September 1, 2016 and will need funds immediately to support the team of navigators, nurses and security traveling with me as we make this journey together. Funds raised will cover transportation and fuel, meals and accommodations, as well as health and medical access. 

For as long as I can remember my family has celebrated Juneteenth and on one occasion it cost my family everything (500 vigilantes burned down our home). I’ve seen a lot in my 90 years, but I truly believe that if we don’t remember what we have been through, our nation is doomed to repeat it. 

We have an online petition  that needs 100,000 signatures in 30 days in order to get a response from the White House. So if you can give at least $1.00 or more now and add your name to the petition, you will help get me to Washington to hopefully see the bill signed into law .
