Journey for Justice Alliance & Congressman Jamaal Bowman
On Wed, Jan. 31st. Congressman Jamaal Bowman presented his resolution platforming Journey for Justice Alliance’s Equity or Else Platform. The congressman will introduce this resolution on the eve of Black History Month, to celebrate the rich history, culture, and long struggle for justice created and experienced by Black Americans. This will be an opportunity for those of us that stand for equity, year-round, to raise it as a priority that Congress should be devoted to.
At the soul of this quality of life agenda is a united call for self-determination. We have the right to de- fine, name and speak for ourselves instead of being defined, named and spoken for by others. We have locked arms across issues to understand that the infection called structural racism is not issue spe- cific. We are prepared to organize to make America be her best self. Our job is to impact America, not integrate into the status quo of “state sponsored sabotage” of our lives. Equity or Else.
