Statement on Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade


The Global Black Caucus is heartbroken and devastated by the Supreme Court’s majority decision to overturn nearly 50 years of Roe v. Wade precedent. We are even more steadfast in our mission to enfranchise even more Americans living abroad to take their frustrations, anger, and sadness to the polls this November. 

The ruling disavows an essential human right … freedom over our bodies for millions of Americans. The consequences will be devastating for Black and Brown women and as indicated in the majority ruling paths the way for an attack on intersectional Americans on every level, from who they love, how they love, and how they family.

If you are as fired up as I am, tell your family, tell your friends, tell everyone to vote them out this November. We need to hold onto the House and gain more seats in the Senators to ensure our country progresses for all of us.

We did it in 2020 and we can do it in 2022. Our freedoms are on the ballot. Our safety is on the ballot. Our lives are on the ballot.

This is you. This is me. This is all of us.

Love and Light
