Statement on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court Decision

June 24, 2022

Today’s Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization lays bare the fragile state of our democracy — one that fails to represent the majority and respect the rights of its citizens, especially of women of color. Once again, we see how vulnerable our political system is to perversion by leaders who are not committed to protecting and strengthening our democracy.

While our democracy has long been profoundly and intentionally broken, it is still incredibly difficult to see the arc toward justice stymied on so many fronts. In order to systemically shift the tide, we must strengthen the pro-democracy movement and create changes that support majority rule and preserve basic rights.

We remain committed to doing all we can to create a more inclusive, multiracial democracy for all.
