LIBERTY & JUSTICE FOR ALL

It’s a good goal, but in 2021, “Liberty and Justice” is only a reality for some. The truth is if we’re going to be a country that ensures all it’s people can exercise their unalienable rights, we have a lot of work to do. Policies created to control people of color are still limiting opportunities for them today. In both, Delaware and Salem County (NJ), blatant negligence has left many communities to suffer, while others have thrived.

Minority student drop out rates too high

Black Families Earn 63-cents for Every $1 Earned by White Families

not enough minority owned businesses in Delaware

Only 19% of Delaware Businesses are Owned by People of Color

Almost half of the people in the state are ethnic minorities, but they are severely underrepresented in the business world.

Reading level is too low among African-American students

65% of African-American Third Graders Read Below Grade-Level

Black and brown children face significant challenges to receiving quality education. Without help, they can fall behind quickly.

Fighting for Equity & Justice

IN DELAWARE & SALEM COUNTY

At the heart of our efforts for equity and justice is the Delaware Racial Justice Collaborative (DRJC). The goal of the collaborative is to end systemic racism in our state. The DRJC funds projects promoting the advancement of minorities. We provide education, resources, and support to people of color all over Delaware. Everyone deserves the chance to live life unburdened. Fight for racial equity and social justice reform, by advocating against policies that limit our black, brown, and minority communities in Delaware.
