Black Lives Matter
Updated: Jun 3, 2020
As an organization working to keep children safe and promote ‘ohana wellbeing by preventing sexual violence and building healthy relationships on Molokai, Molokai Child Abuse Prevention Pathways (MCAPP) believes Black Lives Matter. We acknowledge the systemic injustice that has enabled extreme violence against black people for centuries and today.
With our black sisters, brothers, and siblings, we join so many across the world who mourn the devastating loss of life. We say the names of some who have passed, knowing each represents a life, family, and community.
Societal oppression and violence are root causes of interpersonal violence, including child sexual abuse. Those of us who have survived violence know healing may take more than a lifetime. As we continue that work in our lives and community, we stand with those seeking to stop the cycle of violence here and everywhere.
