Resolution on Race, Justice and Equality

 

WHEREAS, the members of the Princeton Community Democratic Organization, along with our greater Princeton community, denounce acts of hatred and racism;

WHEREAS, the legacy of U.S. slavery continues to poison our country’s ability to function as a true democracy with equality for all;

WHEREAS, systemic racism and hatred have permeated our institutions and limited our ability to pursue life, liberty and happiness regardless of the color of our skin;

WHEREAS, police use of deadly force in this country against Black people and all people of color is abhorrent and intolerable;

WHEREAS, the psychological impact of racism places a burden on all of us, and we will not tolerate hatred or racism through indifference or silence;

THEREFORE, we resolve:

  1. To speak up and not be silent when we see/hear racist, xenophobic, or other hateful word/actions;
  2. To use our votes and voices and economic choices to combat racism in our society and all of our institutions;
  3. To engage in dialogue with law enforcement, elected officials and policy makers to assure zero tolerance for racial bias, harassment, or harm;
  4. To work to ensure the police across the State of New Jersey engage in de-escalation, implicit and unconscious bias training;
  5. To work to ensure that all departments across the government of the State of New Jersey, including courts, schools, prisons, and jails, engage in implicit and unconscious bias training;
  6. To work to hold all candidates accountable for their position on systemic racism;
  7. To encourage continued study, discussion and action on the roots and impacts of systemic racism in our community;
  8. To act with urgency to encourage all eligible voters to exercise their responsibility to vote for candidates that pledge to work to eliminate systemic racism and remedy its disastrous effects.
