Give Respect To The Legacy Of John Conyers
Pass HR 40 Immediately
January 4, 2021
In honor of John Conyers's election to the House of Representatives 56 years ago tonight. There should be a concerted effort to finally pass HR 40 in Congress and the Senate in 2021. The true anniversary of Congressman Conyer’s first taking office during the 89th Congress was January 4, 1965. So why introduce and pass HR 40 on the 56th anniversary of John Conyers's first appearance in the House as a duly elected congressman. That would show the African American communities across the nation that the Democratic Party truly stands in our corner. If by chance the Democratic Party takes the Senate tonight. Then they replicate voting on HR 40 which the House passed. Then if Biden wins the presidency he should sign that bill post haste. Because without African Americans voting in huge numbers for Biden/Harris he couldn’t have come close to winning this election. If HR 40 isn't passed and the legacy of Representative John Conyers isn't honored then our communities should exit the Democratic Party in droves in 2022 and 2024. Because that will be the final nail in the coffin that our votes truly don't amount to anything. We are simply used and abused by this political process.
