Take Down Statue of Confederate General Pike in D.C.

All over the country a struggle is raging over Confederate monuments. In Charlottesville, a decision by the community to remove a statue has resulted in vicious attack by White Supremacists that has already resulted in the tragic death of Heather Heyer. Unfortunately one of these monuments also mars the landscape in Washington D.C., at Third and D St. NW where there is a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike. Pike was an ardent defender of slavery, and after the Civil War continued to be a strong proponent of segregation. These Confederate monuments represent a legacy of slavery, racism and hatred, and they have no place in our society in the 21st Century. Please join Justice First and sign this petition to make it clear that the Pike statue must come down. Together we can challenge, and defeat, white supremacy.
