Our Mission & Philosophy

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

-Unknown

Dedicated to unifying modern-day civil rights activists and grassroots organizations, LegallyBLACK focuses on creating awareness of the racial disparities in all governed areas of our society. Our collective efforts help to evoke tangible changes to local, state, & federal laws, city ordinances, contracts and policies to best protect the well-being of Black, Indigenous, & People of Color (or BIPOC). Our mission is to address the ingrained oppression of BIPOC as the foundation of all of our governing systems in America and eliminate all opportunities to continue on this path so all people of color have unconditional legal access to resources, freedom, peace, liberty, and the equal rights to the pursuit of happiness as promised by the laws of this nation.

 

We believe in order to achieve this feat, the BIPOC community needs the open, notorious, and unapologetic support and action of people of all ethnicities, genders, and identities to use their unique powers and ability to start conversations, implement new processes and/or policies, share resources, create safe spaces, uplift the voices of the oppressed/discriminated against/abused, and educate those who are not on the receiving end of this long standing ingrained oppression.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about what matters." - MLK Jr

Helping Tacoma SPEAK UP for what matters!

For over a year our community has taken to the streets to share our concerns, desire for justice  & equal treatment by law enforcement. We have shouted, cried, shared personal stories, looked to local speakers for inspiration and preachers for salvation. We have gotten the attention of the media, law enforcement, and our local government. LegallyBLACK is committed to making sure our marches, protests, and rallies are not in vain. From political networking, understanding local laws & policies and how our judicial system currently operates, to connecting with the key people in power who have the skill, resources, and ability to make change, we are dedicated to making sure our demands for police reform are heard and met! We promote peaceful protests and marches that help to educate the community and stimulate real long lasting change to our policies and laws. Below are our goals for police transformation. 4 out of 5 have been met, now we continue our efforts to end Qualified Immunity in Washington state.
