Switch4Good stands for the equality of all living beings...


Switch4Good stands for the equality of all living beings. To everyone flooding the streets to demand justice: I see you, I hear you, and I stand with you.

The atrocities American citizens—especially the Black community—have dealt with at the hands of authorities are unconscionable. Though I may never truly know what it is like to be a Black person in America, I know that no person should feel the fear of violence from the very people that take an oath to protect them.

It is not acceptable that we live in a country where the institutions we entrust with power are able to silence those who seek to peaceably exercise their First Amendment rights. It is incomprehensible that Americans are still not equal, and that the extrajudicial killing of Black Americans is seen as a possible outcome of interactions with the police. I cannot stand by and brush off these incidents as outliers, then express shock when this happens again. Because if the system doesn’t change, it will happen again. Racist and violent individuals have no place amongst those we look to as our protectors.

If you stand for equality, this issue deserves to be addressed. To all who have been sabotaged by violence—from the Black community to the peaceful protesters—I hear you. I can’t know what it’s like, but I will not ignore you, and I will not forget you.

Sending love and peace to you and your families,
Dotsie Bausch
Executive Director
