Rep. Roybal-Allard Celebrates Black History Month

Washington, DC Today, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) released the following video statement in honor of Black History Month: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbepLKB5eZk

Below is a copy of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard’s statement.

“Hello, I’m Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard.  Every year during the month of February, we take time to reflect on the countless contributions that African Americans have made to this nation throughout its history.  We recognize and appreciate the collective strength that diversity brings to the United States.

“I’m inspired by African American leaders like Saundra Bryant, from our 40th Congressional District.  For more than thirty years, Saundra has been the Executive Director of All Peoples Community Center in South Los Angeles.  Over her decades of leadership at All Peoples, she has devoted herself to the well-being of her neighbors, overseeing an array of services and activities that have helped generations of local men, women, and children make ends meet and pursue their full potential.

“Black History Month not only encourages us to celebrate the progress we have made as a country, but also reminds us of the work we still have to do.  It is time to work together to find real solutions so we may ensure a better, brighter, and more equitable future for all Americans.

“I am proud to celebrate Black History Month, and I hope you will join me in celebrating the progress we have made as a nation, and recommitting ourselves to building a better tomorrow.”
