Mass Democrats have updated the massdems.org web site with a message about the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
Gus Bickford, Massdems chair, writes:
In the two weeks since the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers, the movement we see unfurling across the country continues to grow. Black and Brown communities are demanding true justice—that George Floyd’s killers are held accountable, and that full, transformative action is taken to address institutional racism in the criminal justice system.
As activists, organizers, and allies, we must listen to Black voices, center them, and follow their lead to effect real change. That’s why we’ve updated massdems.org with a new call to action for Massachusetts Democrats, which leaders of color on our Democratic State Committee helped prepare with our staff. Thank you to all the committee chairs and members who have taken action over the past few weeks to demand justice and accountability.
