Thank you to all who joined us for a panel that explored the history and progress of movements for racial justice in America as embodied in the H. Con. Res. 19 TRHT National Resolution and H.R. 40 legislation.
Catalyzed by the COVID-19 pandemic and epidemic of police brutality in communities of color, a historic racial reckoning is underway in America. The racial injustices from the past and the policies and practices in place that sustain systemic racism today have led to societal and political division, hate, fear, and pain. To counteract these injustices, we must not only upend the lie of white supremacy but work towards repairing the damage caused by its belief.
This year, Congress and the Biden Administration have an opportunity to help to build a more equitable and racially just society. We cannot miss this moment to enact real, transformational change.
