Voces de la Frontera Statement on Rittenhouse Trial Verdict

Español en la segunda página

Voces de la Frontera stands with the families of Anthony Huber and JoJo Robinson, and the entire Kenosha community in our pursuit for justice and healing.

The trial was a national example of how armed, white, right-wing militants get special treatment from law enforcement and our criminal justice system, while Black, Brown, Native, Asian, poor and working class communities continue to be overpoliced, racially profiled and killed with impunity.

What we’ve witnessed time and again is that the criminal justice system was not built to hold perpetrators of violence accountable. It was built to oppress and control communities of color and poor and working people. 

We join with Kenosha residents in continuing to call for justice for Jacob Blake, Anthony Huber, JoJo Robinson, and their families.
