Senate District 53 Stands in Solidarity with Justice for George Floyd
We stand in solidarity and support for the peaceful protests our communities are engaging in as a response to the senseless and brutal killing of George Floyd. Even as we struggle to articulate our grief, we acknowledge the on-going reality of fear, violence, and unequal treatment under the law suffered by people of color in our country. We see the deep wounds and the injustices that continue to make this a reality for too many, for too long. It should be a matter of shame that the Twin Cities has some of the worst racial inequalities in income, healthcare, education, and housing in the USA. This abysmal, and widening, the inequality gap cannot continue. We will not be silent.
We are all part of this pain and the anger, but we pledge also to be part of the solution. As the ‘Big Tent’ party, we see the strength and richness that diversity brings; we want to welcome those who have felt there is no place for them in this conversation because the conversation is incomplete without you. We believe we can do so much more with empathy and understanding. In these hours of sadness, we also see the power of communities coming together and speaking up for justice and the kindness of common Americans from every walk of life. In this, we see hope for the way forward. We believe the strength of our shared humanity is greater than the forces that seek to destroy, oppress, and divide. Let us begin and let us never be silent.

What is a precinct? Want to get involved in SD53?
It is at the precinct level that the grassroots organization happens. Right in your neighborhood! Join us! For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The precinct is the smallest political unit in the country where its residents vote at one location. It is also your neighborhood where you are invested in the outcomes of issues that directly affect you and your family members. It is SD53’s grassroots effort to get-out-the-vote, to support voter registration efforts, to recruit activists to work on campaigns, to name a few–one precinct at a time. Each precinct has a Precinct Chair and Vice-Chair (Click here for the job description).
Join our team to affect change in the community! Contact our Precinct Coordinators to get involved at email@example.com.
