We stand with George Floyd’s family and all those demanding justice and accountability for the Black lives taken by police violence. It is incumbent upon all of us to call out and attack the deep-seated prejudice, discrimination, and structural racism that has long plagued our country.
As a coalition founded to reinstate affirmative action in California, we know the myriad ways in which structural racism and systemic discimination has harmed and limited the potential of Black lives. Now is the time for positive change through collective action, and we will be undeterred by the efforts of those who will try to distract and divide us.
Now more than ever, we at Opportunity for All are united in our struggle to create a more fair, just, and equitable California. Our struggle at its core is about our shared humanity and the right of all communities to live with the dignity and respect that they deserve.
