Justice Can't Wait was founded by four college students following the murder of George Floyd. We began with a letter to several Congressmen/women, Senators, and State Legislators calling for the introduction of our bill, the Hands Up Act. In the process, we found ourselves collecting statistical data to show how widespread police brutality is in our country and to highlight the disproportionate impact it has on minorities—especially the Black community. The team soon quadrupled in size, and our grassroots movement was born. We then began the process of calling for legislature to be introduced at both the Federal and State levels to address the systemic racism that plagues the judicial system. To date, Justice Can't Wait is an entirely volunteer-based organization. We are working on gaining 501(c)(3) status. After which, we will begin our fundraising campaign to support communities of color.
Fall 2020, Justice Can't Wait plans on opening four college chapters in Virginia at Virginia Tech, George Mason University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Old Dominion University, as well two chapters in California at University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, Los Angeles. We encourage our nation's youth to be proactive in our democracy and happily accept the help of everyone seeking to make a difference in their community.
