Sign the petition: #ReclaimBlackFriday to support more Black people in office
Black Friday has become an embarrassment of capitalism and excessive consumerism. But this year Daily Kos is joining our friends at The Collective to #ReclaimBlackFriday.
White people hold 90% of elected officials, while making up only about 60% of the national population. The Collective is committed to increasing the number of Black people in public office.
People of color made amazing gains during the November 8th election, giving us incredible momentum for 2018 midterm elections. Today, let's change the narrative of Black Friday to one that uplifts racial justice and Black political leadership.
All across the country, the next Barack Obama, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, or Maxine Waters is gearing up for a 2018 run for office. Daily Kos-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is ready to turn Georgia blue.
And we need to have their backs!
