Making History

2 mins read

Dear fellow Ohio Democrats,

I woke up this morning feeling more hopeful than I have in far too long.

Tonight, Kamala Devi Harris will make history as the first Black woman and Asian-American woman to accept the vice presidential nomination of a major party. Little Black girls around the country will watch on TV as someone who looks like them proves they can do anything. Be anything. Achieve anything.

As a Black woman in government myself, I know all too well the barriers and hurdles that trailblazers face. Just a few months ago, I was pepper sprayed by police at a Black Lives Matter protest when simply doing my job by showing up for my constituents. The Black women who came before me faced even greater threats, but continued pushing on — because that’s what Black girls do. We eat “no” for breakfast, like Kamala says.

America is ready for a Black woman to serve as vice president — in fact, it is long overdue — but breaking this barrier and defeating Donald Trump is going to require each and every one of us to get off the sidelines.

I’m inviting you today to step up with me and get this done — can I count on you to chip in $10 to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris?

I’m so proud of Kamala, and I can’t wait to see her tonight and to pay tribute to all of the Black women on whose shoulders we stand. We owe them everything.

I’m Joyce Beatty, and I approve this message.
