DC Mayor Muriel Bowser: We Must Undo The Laws And Systems Which Codify Racism

|

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser spoke on the first night of the Democratic National Convention in front of a portion of 16th Street that has been renamed 'Black Lives Matter Plaza.'

"I have a two-year-old daughter and I want her to grow up in an America where she is not scared to walk to the store, an America where she's safe behind the doors of her own home, an America where the president doesn't fan the flames of racism, and looks out for all of us," Bowser said. "We can't just say those words, we have to live those words. We have to undo the laws and systems that have codified racism for far too long."


"We have to do something too. Each and every one of us. Challenge our own biases. If we see something, do something. Together, we can turn this reckoning into a reimagining of a nation where ‘We The People’ means all the people.”
