Sonebody's Hurting My Brother

"Somebody's Hurting My Brother" in collaboration with the Poor People's Campaign (PPC).

"Somebody's Hurting My Brother," originally by Yara Allen, was born in a town hall meeting where attendees were testifying against the environmentally racist and devastating effects of Duke Energy's coal ash in the local predominately Black, Brown, and poor white neighborhoods.

Lyrics:
Somebody’s hurting my brother
and it’s gone on far too long
Yes, it’s gone on far too long
It’s gone on far too long
I said, somebody’s hurting my brother
and it’s gone on far too long
And we won’t be silent anymore

Somebody's hurting my sister...
Somebody's hurting my sibling...
Somebody's hurting our people...
Somebody's hurting our children...
Somebody’s poisoning the water...
Somebody’s ignoring the homeless...
Somebody’s closing our borders…
Somebody’s hurting our families…
Nobody’s feeding the hungry…
etc.
