SURJ Endorses Attica Scott for KY-03

Can you imagine a working class Black woman from Kentucky- who was a leader in the uprisings against police brutality in Louisville in 2020- elected to US Congress to challenge the power of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul?

Attica Scott- and progressive, justice-aligned people of color candidates like her- are part of our collective path forward to beat the Right and build a multiracial democracy. 

The Far Right and corporate politicians are working to dismantle the foundations of democracy and move a racist agenda that serves no one but those at the top. To effectively fight back, we need so much more than the moderate, stay-the-course candidates the Democratic party is currently running. We know that individual candidates aren’t going to save us, but values-aligned elected officials are a part of the landscape in which we’ll win real change.

On the heels of a strong progressive showing in the Texas primaries, SURJ is thrilled to be endorsing Attica Scott who is running in the Democratic primary for Congress in Kentucky. Attica is a deeply-aligned movement candidate. She’s been a leader in Kentucky on issues like legalizing marijuana, holding police accountable and protecting abortion rights for all. 

Electing progressive candidates of color is a part of our collective path forward. It’s our work to make sure white people join the work of building towards a more just future for us all.
