Victoria Neave for Texas State Representative
Today, I was led by the youth of Mesquite, Texas in a march affirming and celebrating the value and strength of Black lives. Because of young people, we now face a turning point in our nation. This is living history—young people continuing the fight of the Civil Rights Movement that was fueled by students like 15-year-old Claudette Colvin. Jordan Edwards should be walking across the stage graduating from Mesquite High School this week. George Floyd should have been alive to watch his daughter graduate. We must speak out until there are no more missed graduations. Black Lives Matter. Period.
