Turning Interest Into Action
Freedom Fighters DC seeks liberation for all Black people through the eradication of facism, white supremacy, and racism. We are a collective of like-minded people, based in the DC and it’s surrounding areas, committed to the aforementioned sentiments. We were formed in response to the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor & Tony McDade but will continue to serve our community past these horrific moments in time.
Black people experience violent oppression under systemic racism in the United States of America and deserve justice. We come together to fight police brutality, racial inequality, and any system that does not promote the true equality and equity of all persons.
