The Pitman Dems will not post a Feel Good Friday message today. We can’t.
Instead, we should focus ourselves on a very different pandemic gripping our nation. In response to the continued racism against black and brown citizens in our country, we think that it is more fitting to use today remembering those whose lives that have been needlessly lost, and to contemplate what we can do as citizens and neighbors to take a stand against racism.
Councilman Weng, in his post earlier today, suggested one way that you can help as individuals & families is by making a donation to the NAACP Empowerment programs. Here are two other links with suggestions regarding actions that you can take to become an ally.
As a party, as your elected representatives, and as your neighbors, we adamantly condemn racism in all its forms and will do whatever we can to see its end.
