The California Democratic Party African American Caucus (CDPAAC) is calling on all elected officials in California at the local, state and national levels to take a firm stand against racism. 

By signing the Emmett Till Anti-Racism Pledge, the CDPAAC says politicians, who are the most important decision makers in California, can demonstrate in a public and symbolic way that they denounce racism and support a society for all Californians that is fair, just and safe.

“The Democratic party and the people of California must never forget about the murder of Emmett Till. It ignited the first civil rights movement. He was that generation's George Floyd and Breonna Taylor,” said Taisha Brown, chair of the CDPAAC.
