DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Black History Month

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in recognition of Black History Month:

“This February, we celebrate Black History Month. It is an opportunity to recognize the invaluable contributions that African Americans have made to our nation. Through innovations in technology, advances in medicine, athletic and artistic achievements, and promoting social justice, just to name a few, African Americans have helped move our nation toward a more perfect union.

“The understanding and appreciation fostered by Black History Month strengthens our resolve to continue on the path of progress. The Democratic Party will keep fighting to expand the vote and protect the franchise for all Americans, and to push economic policies that put middle class families first. We remain strongly committed to making sure every American has access to quality health care and affordable higher education.

“Black History Month is our chance to reflect on and express our appreciation for the ways the African American community has helped shape the American Dream. But in equal measure, it is our responsibility to use those lessons to ensure equality of opportunity for future generations.”
