Young Democrats of Forsyth County president, Quamekia Shavers, remains committed to community activism, even in the midst of the difficult times facing Forsyth County.
In recent weeks, Quamekia has taken the lead on several notable events to address police brutality in the Forsyth County community and beyond. On June 3, Quamekia, along with The Pride Show and LGBTQ Democrats of Forsyth County organizations, facilitated a protest in opposition to recent police brutality around the United States. This "Peace for ALL Protest" embodied nearly 200 participants and elected officials all marching from the Benton Convention Center to the Winston-Salem Public Safety building in solidarity for this cause. Quamekia said that, to her, "the protest was about making history, creating change, and protecting future generations."
Quamekia has also recently joined several Forsyth County Democratic candidates to discuss the issues facing Forsyth County. On June 10, Quamekia joined State Senate candidate, Terri LeGrand, on Facebook Live to discuss the police brutality aftermath and plan the strategy to keep the Black Lives Matter agenda moving forward. And on June 12, She sat down with Forsyth County Commissioner candidate, Chris Smith, in a conversation about the Black Lives Matter Movement and helping erase systemic racism.
Quamekia continues to shine in the Forsyth County Democratic Party through showing tremendous leadership and character. That's why she is our Good News Democrats story of the week! Here are some photos from her recent events:
