Saburah El-Amin is the co-founder, backbone, and lead community organizer for the SHARE Center in Lexington, KY. Her experience and activism in the Central Kentucky community has spanned more than two decades.

Narrative from original post:

Saburah: “It’s not just COVID killing us, not just policemen killing us … It’s been going on since the beginning. And you now have #45 creating more divisions. But it’s not only #45. America itself is a racist country. The forefathers instilled racism in their children and they instilled it in theirs.

I think the Black Lives Matter movement is a good thing. But I am not going out to protest. I am going to stay in my own neighborhood and take care of people there. Until African Americans start taking care of African Americans things won’t get better.”
