On Sept. 30, the organization Good Kids Mad City held a march in Baltimore City. 

Struggle-La Lucha interviewed Destini Philpot, spokesperson for Good Kids Mad City, who gave the following statement: 

“We are a Black, Brown and Indigenous collective of youth called Good Kids Mad City. We are a Baltimore to Chicago organization. We work to dismantle oppressive systems that cause violence to occur in our cities in the first place. This is the launch of our FTP Times Three series, which is ‘Fuck The Police, Free The People, Fight The Power.’

“So while we’re out here protesting the police brutality we experience in America daily as Black and Brown people, we also acknowledge the importance of putting into our community and providing resources for those who have less. This won’t be our only action, so we’ll come back out and we’ll do rallies where we’re providing basic needs and resources, whether it be around housing or education.

“We will be out here as long as it takes.”
