Black, Latinx, Native, and other marginalized Americans have been trying to tell America. Only when they struck the Capitol, only now will many white people get it.

Nationally, Black Americans and Latinx people are hospitalized at roughly 4x more than white Americans, and their risk of dying of COVID-19 is close to 3x higher. The death rate for American Indians and Alaska Natives is nearly 2x that for white Americans.

Black communities face racist policing. Muslim Americans face surveillance. Latinx neighborhoods are targeted with immigration raids. In 2021, we’ll work with Biden’s team to pass the End Racial and Religious Profiling Act to bring long lasting change.
