October 11, 2018

New York, NY – President George Gresham has released the following statement regarding the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court:

"Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court shows the work that we as a nation have to do in the pursuit of a better society.  

"Injustice and inequality have always been at work in the United States, and it is up to us as workers and responsible citizens to help turn the tide.  We must come together to fight for the rights of our families and our communities.  We must take to the polls on November 6th, 2018 and November 3, 2020 and vote. 

"In the words of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, 'Democracy just cannot flourish amid fear. Liberty cannot bloom amid hate. Justice cannot take root amid rage. America must get to work.'

"We are bold, we are determined, and we will create a better America for ourselves, for our children, and for the future."
