Congresswoman Waters, A Fearless Leader Fighting for Us All
October 15, 2020

California Senator Kamala Harris makes history as the first Black woman to compete on a major party’s presidential ticket.
August 13, 2020
By all accounts, Joe Biden should easily walk into the White House following the November elections. Donald Trump should be a one term-president, and America could be rid of the nightmare we’ve been in for the past 3 ¾ years, leading to the end of his four-year term. On Tuesday, August 11, 2020 former Vice President Joe Biden took one step closer to becoming the 46th President of the United States by selecting California Senator Kamala Harris as his Democratic running mate. A historic selection, Harris becomes the first Black woman to run on the Democratic Party’s national ticket for vice president. ... read more »
Voting Is the Centerpiece of Our Democracy
August 13, 2020
August 6 was the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. If the constitutional amendments passed after the Civil War — the 13, 14 and 15th Amendments — were the “second founding” of democracy in America, the Voting Rights Act, which after nearly a century of segregation gave legal effect to the 15th Amendment that outlawed discrimination in the right to vote, should be considered the “third founding.” ... read more »

Reigniting Ferguson’s Fires of Resistance: Reaffirming Our Right and Will to Breathe
June 4, 2020
The racist public murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis has now added to a list of recent and historical victims of police violence and racist terrorism, including Devon Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arberry, Tamir Rice, Atatiana Jefferson, Philando Castile and numerous others. And as our people rise up in massive resistance seeking justice for these Black men, women and children, martyred on the altar of White supremacy, they serve as bright lights and fierce fires lifted up to show the way forward in struggle. Indeed, they call on us to intensify and continue the struggle against the radical evil of these murderous police and vigilante practices and against the savage system which sanctions and supports them and other related forms of oppression. And we owe it to ourselves and to our martyrs to continue the intensified struggle, keep the faith and hold the line until victory. ... read more »
