A Statement from the Easton Democratic Town Committee

Racial justice is a human right that continues to be violated in our country. The Easton DTC is grieved and outraged by the countless murders of black men and women, and collectively mourns the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks. . . and of so many more Black, Indigenous, and People of Color as a result of systemic racism. We unequivocally condemn these injustices and will continue to join our voices and actions in protest to demand change. 

BLACK. LIVES. MATTER.

As Easton Democrats we will:

  • Adamantly condemn white supremacy and systemic racism
  • Do the work within our town, community, state, and nation to end violence and police brutality against people of color
  • Engage in open dialogue with law enforcement, elected officials, town boards, as well as local and state policy makers to assure zero tolerance for racial harassment or harm
  • Educate ourselves and provide community education, resources, and events that promote racial justice, and help us reach the promise of Liberty and Justice for ALL
  • Listen to and amplify the voices of people of color in our community, town, state, and country while standing with them in solidarity and support
  • Recruit and support candidates who are committed to fighting for racial justice on all fronts—educational, social, economic, medical, environmental—and will hold all elected and appointed officials accountable for their positions on systemic racism

BLACK. LIVES. MATTER.

We commit to confronting racism openly, honestly, and to champion equality, fairness, and justice. These are not new beliefs, but ones that have been held quietly; that ends now. Our collective voice and power will be used as catalysts for change in Easton, Fairfield County, and across Connecticut.

In solidarity, The Easton Democratic Town Committee
