Just back from #ShutItDownDC. quick thoughts:

1. The unprecedented protection neo-Nazis continue to receive from police is unconscionable. I am from DC, have lived here my whole adulthood and have never seen a protestor group tended to the way these white supremacists have been.
2. @wmata has some explaining to do. After repeatedly stating that K*ssler & his Nazi pals wouldn’t get special treatment from Metro, all 20 or so of them (lol) got their own train car to ride to Foggy Bottom. Portions of Foggy Bottom’s platform were blocked so they could exit.
3. I saw the police guarding the front section of the neo-Nazi group shoving journalists backwards as they tried to get shots of the Nazis marching. It was unnecessary and dangerous.

All this for <20 neo-Nazis. What a waste of and law enforcement resources and taxpayers' hard-earned dollars. #UniteTheRight2
Whatever DC spent on helicopters, motorcycle cops, riot police, and even a squadron of officers on bicycles to provide a handful of neo-Nazis a safe space may actually be worth it just for this counter-protester chant. #UniteTheRight2

On the anniversary of #Charlottesville, join the movement @privtoprog and tell your network that you will NOT BE SILENT! #ShowUp
On April 12, @MichelleSaahene and I sparked a national conversation with the video of two young men being unjustly arrested @starbucks for doing what people who look like me do every day without incident.
That conversation started a movement to build awareness that when allies educate themselves, speak up in their everyday lives and amplify on social media, they choose to be part of the solution.
