This Black History Month the Global Black Caucus is ‘Recognizing and Celebrating African-American History and History In The Making’. And the best part about Black History Month is that you can be part of it.
February first we will be blacking out all of our social media pages for 24 hrs because, yes there still are people out there who just recently stated that African-American people are not Americans.
Our Call To Action is a little different this time.
In addition to calling your Senators we hope you will join us in posting a black picture for 24hrs with the following suggested text and yes, please encourage your families, friends, brothers, sisters & allies to follow your lead:
An attack on our African-American Community is an attack on all Americans…The fight is far from over. When we look at the cumulative effect of what’s going on with our voting rights - the cumulative effect of the rise of white supremacists coming into black areas trying to intimidate - the cumulative effect of states who are putting forth more and more voter suppression laws. The fight is not over. It’s far from over!
We are dedicated even more to fight harder. Being demoralized is not an option!
We are talking about our liberty, our freedom! Not just for us and our children but for all Americans.
We demand fair elections!
