2020 Equality Statement


THE MISS’D AMERICA ORGANIZATION IS DEEPLY SADDENED BY THE SENSELESS TRAGEDIES THAT HAVE BEFALLEN OUR COUNTRY, INCLUDING THE KILLING OF AMERICAN CITIZENS AND ESCALATING VIOLENCE BETWEEN MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AND LAW ENFORCEMENT.

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

THE MISS’D AMERICA ORGANIZATION CONDEMNS RACISM, PREJUDICE AND INJUSTICE IN ALL FORMS. DIVERSITY AND EQUALITY ARE THE VERY FOUNDATION ON WHICH THIS ORGANIZATION IS BUILT. WE CELEBRATE WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE AND ENCOURAGE ALL PEOPLE TO BE PROUD OF WHO THEY ARE.

WE DON’T REDUCE LIFE TO BLACK AND WHITE; WE EMBRACE ALL THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW.

RACIAL INEQUALITY HAS NO PLACE IN 2020. IT HAS PLAGUED OUR SOCIETY FOR TOO LONG AND MUST STOP. PEACEFUL PROTESTS SHOULD CONTINUE UNTIL OUR COLLECTIVE VOICE IS HEARD AND UNTIL THE CHANGE WE CALL FOR IS IMPLEMENTED IN EVERY STATE AND COUNTRY ON EARTH.

THE INTERSECTIONALITY OF THIS SITUATION IS NOT LOST ON US. WE AS AN ORGANIZATION STAND WITH ALL AMERICANS. THIS ESPECIALLY INCLUDES THE MOST VULNERABLE AMONG US: BLACK AMERICANS, POC AMERICANS, TRANS AMERICANS, AND THE ENTIRE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY.

THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA IS SECOND TO NO PLACE ON EARTH. IN OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR STRENGTH IS GREATEST IN THE VOTING BOOTH. SEND A MESSAGE ON ELECTION DAY THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH:

VOTE!
