We’re reminiscing about those heady days of 1962 when President John F. Kennedy announced that the United States was going to the Moon. Today, our version of a Moonshot is finally dealing with our historic and ongoing issues of racial injustice.
It won’t be easy. It will be difficult, but that’s what makes it even more worthwhile. As we enter the homestretch of Obama’s presidency, now is the time to come to terms with the inequities our fellow Americans have suffered throughout our history and make it right.
Sign this petition to call on President Obama to address the issues of race during his final months in office:
The way to ameliorate the costs of making things right are directly equal to the cost of the Apollo Moon Landing. $150 billion directed at poor communities over the next 10 years, to provide access to equal education, good housing, jobs and job training, making communities safer and an overhaul of the Justice system.
If we can spend $150 billion landing two men on the moon we can spend it raising up Americans of color to truly access the American Dream. Let’s hold out our hands to support our Brothers and Sisters of Color as we reboot the American Dream. Together.
