DFLA is committed to defending Black life. We are disturbed by recent incidents of police brutality against Black people in the United States, and we call for cultural and police reform to protect Black life.
We are unequivocally committed to addressing systemic racism in all its form in the United States. Such racism filters into access to healthcare, policing interaction, representation, and access to education. Sadly, people of color are also disproportionately impacted by the abortion industry. We support legislative reform to advance the rights and needs of people of color.
Black voices in the pro-life movement
We are committed to amplifying the voices of Black pro-life voices in the United States. Many of the leading pro-life Democrats in state legislatures across the nation are Black leaders, who reflect the opinions of their constituencies. We agree with Senator Katrina Jackson of Louisiana that racial justice is a pro-life issue.
While progress has been made, we are committed to making the pro-life and Whole Life movements more representative of the US as a whole. In particular, DFLA is conscious of including the African American Church and their communities in our efforts to address Whole Life issues such as abortion and racism.
