A Message From Our President

Judson Robinson III • President and CEO

Significance of Our Vote on Election Day

On the evening of November the 8, 2016, the American people chose a President to represent our nation and lead the free world. Represent our nation and lead the free world. When I ponder the significance of those eight words, I wonder if we really felt the significance of our vote on Election Day. For decades, we as a people have pushed the civil rights agenda forward to ensure all our voices are heard. We have fought for and gained opportunities to ensure diversity and inclusion. We have fought to level the playing field and spoken up for the undereducated, underemployed, under housed and underrepresented. We fought to have federal legislation to protect our rights ensuring that fairness and equality is forever our aim. And like a thief in the night, people look up and see voter suppression being exercised through our court system, and our protections like Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act being gutted. We hear the “dog whistle” language of “Take our Country Back” and “Make America Great Again” while incidents of violence between black men and police escalate across the country. We heard the rhetoric, and witnessed the ugly side of the constant pitting of us against them, and then we went to the polls.
