Rally For The 94 Percent
October 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Promises Made To The 94% Must Be Kept
Ninety-four percent of Black voters cast their ballots for Governor Phil Murphy in 2017. Without this support from the Black community, it is unlikely that Phil Murphy would be New Jersey’s governor: fifty-three percent of white voters supported his opponent. But nine months into his administration, Governor Murphy has not focused on critical issues facing the 94%.
The Institute and its partners call on Governor Phil Murphy to take action on the following racial justice issues:
- Transforming the Youth Justice System
- Closing the Racial Wealth Gap
- Restoring the Right to Vote to People with Criminal Convictions
New Jersey’s most stark and pressing racial disparities are calling out for courageous leadership and Governor Murphy can and should make clear that he is as committed to the 94 percent as they were to him. We stand ready to work with him when he does. RSVP at event website.
