Righting generational wrongs

One thing that Donald Trump has made perfectly clear: that the lives of Black Americans are in terrible danger as long as he remains president.

But the problem runs deeper than one administration's misconduct. It's the systematic and systemic violence against Black Americans, the lack of accountability for each and every crime committed on American soil against our friends and neighbors.

Those who shot Jacob Blake should be held accountable. Just like those who killed George Floyd must be held accountable. And Breonna Taylor. And too many more.

This election is our chance to move things in the right direction, but it can't be about just one night.

It has to be a movement, an effort in each and every state to reform a broken system and rebuild the trust that system has stripped away from generations of Americans who were oppressed.

We must all continue to raise our voices to demand change. My promise to you is I'll keep up the fight in Congress and be on the front lines with our grassroots movement peacefully fighting for change.

I want you there with me. Because it's going to take energy and effort from all of us to right these generational wrongs.
