We are saddened and frustrated to hear about the 4-4 decision the Supreme Court issued this morning on President Obama’s executive actions to protect undocumented parents of US citizens. In these moments of frustration, we are reminded of the words of Martin Luther King: ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’
Remembering this, we will continue to work for the dignity and rights of all members of our communities. If, like us, you are frustrated, agitated and in pain today, join us! We are focused on one thing: ensuring that everyone who is eligible to vote, does so. Put your hand to the wheel with us as we answer this decision with historically high voter turnout from our communities. Our message to will be: we are the basis of your power, and we will hold you accountable.
