United in Resistance, Moving Towards Victory

WASHINGTON – As different movements gear up for May Day demonstrations, Advancement Project, a national racial justice organization released the following statement:

“With the first 100 days of this administration drawing to a close, we come together across movements to uplift people of color, immigrants, workers, women and the LGBTQ community,” said Judith Browne Dianis, Executive Director of Advancement Project’s national office. “The first chapter of this administration has meant 100 days of targeting, persecuting and marginalizing those it sees as not belonging in their vision for the country.

“Fighters in the centuries-old struggle for freedom in this country understood that the path to victory is long and treacherous, and today the racial justice movement is stronger than it has been in decades. Led by those taking to the streets on May Day and in the future, we will finish the fight. Together, we will overcome the last stand of white supremacy.”
