Black Candidates Running for Office in 2020
Please see who the Black candidates are in your state.
Happy Juneteenth 2020!
We are in some exciting and challenging times, as the our nation is recognizing and working to right the wrongs to the Black community in our nation, as we celebrate 155 years of freedom.
The African American Caucus is in this fight, working to create better polices, better representation, and working to create change from a community, policy and pipeline building standpoint.
In order to accomplish those goals, we need a strong membership of Black Democratic Leaders and allies, to step in and step up. In honor and celebration of our continued strength, fight and freedom, we ask you to become members of the African American Caucus.

African American Caucus
This was shared from Tom Steyer:
Today is Juneteenth — a day when African American families and friends get together to celebrate an important milestone in ending slavery in America. This year it has become a day to stand for Black lives, support racial justice, and emphasize education of this history. We invite you to recognize the holiday by taking the following actions:
Attend local or virtual events today and throughout this weekend. Find one near you.
Support Black businesses and encourage others to do the same. Help reach the $5 million goal in 15 days. Click here to learn more.
Sign the petition to demand Reparations.
A brief background on Juneteenth
The Emancipation Proclamation was issued on January 1, 1863 and freed enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy. However, the Emancipation Proclamation wasn’t announced and enforced in Texas until June 19, 1865 — two and half years after it was issued. After that announcement, the Proclamation had finally reached all those enslaved in the Confederate states. Juneteenth commemorates that event.

Democrats for Israel Los Angeles joins the California Democratic Party in standing in solidarity with the CDP African American Caucus in denouncing the inequality and violence inflicted on the African American Community.
This is not about one person. It is not about George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, or Ahmaud Arber or any one of the hundreds of African Americans who became victims of the tragic failures in our nation’s justice system.
The Torah reads: “You shall appoint magistrates and officials for your tribes, in all the settlements that the Lord your God is giving you, and they shall govern the people with due justice. You shall not judge unfairly: you shall show no partiality. . . .Justice, justice shall you pursue" (Deut. 16:18-20).
In this respect, we as a country have not yet succeeded and we can not remain silent in the face of such failure as communities of color face institutional racism and implicit bias.
We stand with those who seek justice for George Floyd and many others like him - those who express their pain and anger clearly, peacefully and safely, and call for equality and justice in one powerful voice.
