The Aquehung Women’s Democratic Club supports and stands shoulder to shoulder with our elected officials on the federal, state, county, and local levels in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

Many thanks to our Senate Majority Leader in advancing major policing reforms including the repeal of 50-A and other important bills to help implement real improvements to law enforcement efforts in New York State.  We are shocked and saddened at the horrific murder of George Floyd as it highlights what being black in America means. We trust that the implementation of these policing reforms will help the healing process for minority communities that have been disproportionately targeted and will facilitate better partnerships between law enforcement and the New Yorkers they serve.

The Aquehung Women’s Democratic Club believes in using our influence and power to actively support qualified candidates who view society through the lens of equality to ensure we undo systemic racism.  We commit to strong active engagement with communities of color in order to bring more people into decision making positions.
