Racial Justice 2020: Voting & Building Power for a Just Future
During the last decade voting rights were gutted and police killings of Black people sparked the Black Lives Matter movement and the beginning of important criminal justice reforms. It also brought the election of the first Black president followed by a Donald Trump presidency that is openly advancing a white nationalist vision of America that targets people of color, immigrants, Muslims, women, and LGBTQ people with policies that violate our rights, reinforce white supremacy and rollback efforts to advance racial justice. The next president must be willing to articulate a clear vision for racial justice that counters the conservative’s white identity agenda that is harming Black and Brown communities and that threatens to define the new decade.
The Center for Urban and Racial Equity’s 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Scorecard encapsulates key components of this vision for equity and justice and tracks and scores the major candidates’ policy positions on voting rights, health care, education, reparations, environmental justice, criminal justice, immigration and other issues to help voters make an informed decision ahead of this year’s pivotal election.
Join the South Florida People of Color and the Center for Urban and Racial Equity’s Dr. Judy Lubin for a dialogue and panel discussion with Dwight Bullard, New Florida Majority, Jo Hanna “J” Thompson, National Black Women’s Justice Institute, Francesca Menes, The Black Collective and Ruban Roberts, NAACP.
CURE launched their 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Candidate Scorecard featured in theRoot, Ebony, NewsOne, HuffPost , and other national media. For more information about CURE’s 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Scorecard, visit racialjustice2020.org.
