AIM So Cal has been working on removing racist symbols for years and helped to successfully remove the Columbus statue here in LA as well as change Columbus Day to Indigenous peoples day. It is time to go to the state capitol!

As a racial reckoning occurs across the country we must not forget the many racist symbols of America’s dark legacy of oppression, slavery and colonialism that still stand.

Statues of Christopher Columbus are finally being taken down. There have been reports of Christopher Columbus statues being tampered with, one thrown into a lake, one beheaded, and another pulled to the ground.

The time to take down the Columbus statue inside the state capital is long overdue. We are mobilizing to take down ALL symbols of oppression starting at the CA State Capitol!!

Join us Friday June 12th at the Ronald Reagan State Building at 2pm as a coalition of grassroots groups join us in our efforts to take down the statue that stands in the middle of the state capitol.

THE TIME IS NOW!
