We are concerned about racial equity because it affects the daily lives of those in our community. Equal representation at all levels (political, educational, etc.) further expands the contributions that POC can make for the collective good of society. Citizens' financial security, physical well-being, or ability to live without being discriminated against because of the color of their skin are all benefits that would arise as a result of such representation. In short, it is important to recognize the lives of all individuals, including those whose rights have historically been denied, and ensure that we all have equitable access to the same resources.
