"Just as we have advocated against mass incarceration in our fight against the Youth Jail and advocated against police brutality in our fight to pass Christopher’s Law, we will advocate against the parasitic nature in which the non-profit industrial complex in Baltimore uses Black suffering to create white institutional power.  The only people who are qualified to liberate us is us.  We do not want your charity, we want justice.  Unless you are willing to be beholden to Black power you are a part of the problem no matter how good your intentions are."
