There is no guest for this episode of the Cheers! North County Podcast. No guest for this weeks show. Support Black Lives Matter. We must stand up against racism in all forms, and to commit to continuing to learn, support, vote, and use our voices to continue to promote this cause. The murder of George Floyd, and too many others, has re-shined a light on our failings as a society, and reignited people worldwide. This demand for change can’t stop just because it is uncomfortable, inconvenient, or because there are those trying to distract from these issues. The need for action, for advocating for those that need it, for black people, and for people of color impacted systemic racism isn’t going away.This episode was recorded on June 5th, 2020.
