Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I need your help. For the past few years, I've been working on a campaign to take down the Mississippi state flag--the last flag with the Confederate battle emblem. You all know what the Confederate battle emblem represents: hatred, death, slavery, Jim Crow and the Confederacy.
The time for the flag to come down is now.
We're bringing national attention to this campaign with a rally on the grounds of the US Capitol., Tuesday, June 14--Flag day. If you can, join us in Washington, DC, June 14 at 11 a.m. Some of us will be traveling by bus from Jackson, Mississippi on Sunday--we'll be traveling for 18 hours because we think that taking down the flag is just that important.
Your support is needed now and by signing up for this Thunderclap, an automatic message will be posted on your Twitter and Facebook to let the country know, #TakeItDownAmerica. Can you support the Thunderclap to bring down the Mississippi state flag? Mississippians deserve a flag that represents all people.

You are appreciated, thank you so much.
