Statement by Angela Fobbs, Global Black Caucus Chair, and Julia Bryan, Democrats Abroad Global Chair
Justice has been delivered to George Floyd and his family, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief - for now.
We must take this moment to not only deliver justice for the dead but to protect the living. We must help make our country a place where we can all breathe freely, a place where the color of our skin does not put us at risk.
Philonise Floyd said after the verdict, "As an African American, we usually never get justice."
This inequality cannot stand.
The House has passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. It is time for the Senate to do so too. Democrats and Republicans must rise to the challenge of our times, unite our United States behind this issue, and transform policing in America.
Our moral compass is bending towards justice. It’s time to put policies in place to make this transformation complete. The time is now.
Take action now - contact your senators today and demand they support the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
On August 1, start the month off right by having your Sunday morning coffee or tea with DA Saxony! We will be discussing some of the big upcoming decisions at the DA global level, and you will have the opportunity to share your ideas and views with the two DPCA voting representatives from our chapter who will be voting on our behalf. Never been to a meeting before? No problem! It's a great chance to get to know our lovely chapter members and organization. RSVP to receive the log-in link.
Join Kenton Barnes, DA Germany Chair, and Emily Lines, DA Germany Vice Chair, for an online "Meet and Greet" on Sunday, August 29th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We'll discuss our organization's structure and goals, introduce ourselves as the leaders of DA Germany, and discuss ways you can get involved as a volunteer with DA Germany and with your local chapter.
Whether you're a long-time member or completely new to DA Germany, we warmly welcome all members to join us for this afternoon event. We hope to answer any questions you may have about DA Germany, as well as foster a lively, productive discussion with each other.
To actively participate in the event, you will need a computer with an internet connection as well as a working microphone.
