As long as Black men and women cannot breathe, we cannot rest

Statement from Julia Bryan, Global Chair of Democrats Abroad and Angela Fobbs, DA Global Black Caucus Chair

DNC Chair Tom Perez said today, "As long as Black men and women cannot breathe, we cannot rest."

We cannot rest until justice prevails in the United States of America, until police brutality is ended, and racism is no longer supported and applauded. We cannot stay silent but instead must stay strong and shout loudly and clearly that this . is . not . right.

Democrats Abroad demands that justice be brought down upon the heads of the killers of George Floyd, of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, and that they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We must address racial injustice. We must work to vote out of office the politicians who so wrongly and inhumanely support institutionalized racism across the United States, and vote into office the leaders we need who will lead us forward to a new era where justice prevails, and we all enjoy unconditional human rights.

The Democrats Abroad Global Black Caucus invites you to join us for an online vigil on Tuesday, June 2 at 1pm Eastern, to stand up and testify against the institutionalized racism embedded in the power institutions of the United States.

During the vigil, our members and allies will be able to speak out against the atrocities happening in the United States right now.
