Raphael Warnock on Civil Rights

 

 


Endorsed by Human Rights Campaign

[The HRC, a pro-GLBT organization, said]: "We need pro-equality champions like Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock to help usher in a pro-equality majority in the U.S. Senate," said Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David. "Both Ossoff and Warnock will prioritize the passage of the Equality Act if elected, and their historic races will be our highest priority in the coming weeks and months.

Protect LGBTQ+ from housing, financial, job discrimination

Q: Protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation?

Raphael Warnock: Yes. Will "protect members of the LGBTQ+ community from housing, financial, and employment discrimination."

Kelly Loeffler: Not if it interferes with religious faith. "People of faith should be protected."

Protesters calling for change, believes change is possible

Warnock said, protesters across the country are calling for the status quo to change. "It won't change unless we elect leaders who are focused on fighting for Georgians, not fighting for their corporate interests or their political party," Warnock said. "And I believe change is possible. Anytime you have NASCAR saying 'we don't want the Confederate flag' and you have Mitt Romney saying, 'Black Lives Matter,' things are changing."

Fraud almost nonexistent; really about voter suppression

For William Barr, the top cop in our country, to somehow suggest that vote by mail leads to fraud is wrong on its face. But it's part of what we've seen with the Republicans as we've dealt with this whole issue of voter suppression. They've used the language of voter fraud. Everybody knows that voter fraud through voter ID, for example, is almost nonexistent. It's really a way of trying to suppress the vote. But it won't work. We're pushing back here in Georgia.

No such thing as equal rights for some; yes to Equality Act

As a civil rights advocate, he believes that there's no such thing "as equal rights for some."˙That belief has led him to advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community, to mourn in moments of tragedy and to celebrate in times of triumph, as after the Supreme Court's recognition of marriage equality. He will fight for and support the Equality Act to protect members of the LGBTQ+ community from housing, financial, and employment discrimination.˙

Nexus of taken a wrecking ball to African Americans

The time is now to build a health care system that expands affordable access for all, and places care for the most marginalized among us at the center. We need leaders who will be busy doing everything they can to fight not just this global pandemic, but the disparities in our health care system that exacerbated it. Our failure to address the nexus of income inequality, health care inequality, and racial inequality has put everyone at risk, but has taken a wrecking ball to African Americans.
