IN THE END, WE WILL REMEMBER NOT THE WORDS OF OUR ENEMIES, BUT THE SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. – MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Juneteenth is a moment to pause and reflect upon the terrible human suffering caused by slavery. This year, it takes on special meaning as we have seen abundant evidence that slavery’s costs and consequences continue through to the present.
The #BlackLivesMatter protests have done a great service to America by forcing us to look ourselves in the mirror and admit that racism, inequality and injustice are not merely history: they are reality in too many communities.
As our namesake, John McCain, so often reminded us, the great strength of American democracy is that it provides an opportunity to change the future. We are NOT bound to repeat the mistakes and injustices of the past if we speak up and do our part. We can organize ourselves and dedicate ourselves to a brighter, more just future.
This Juneteenth, we pledge ourselves to support the movement for change that #BlackLivesMatter has given voice to. We will rededicate ourselves to our fundamental mission of advancing human freedom and human dignity, not only in far off lands where it is so often under attack, but also here at home.
