Freedom & End Discrimination

Protect people’s freedom to live and work safely and without discrimination

President Franklin Roosevelt once said the foundation of a healthy and strong democracy is rooted in equally shared opportunity and rising standard of living, as well as personal security and preservation of civil liberties. But too many communities have been treated unjustly. People are unfairly denied economic opportunities, excluded because of lack of language access, and subjected to discrimination and violence. There must be no greater priority for our country than ensuring every community has a voice in our elections, equitable economic opportunity, fundamental freedoms, and personal safety. The future of our democracy depends on it.
