 “The League of Women Voters Aurora Area is deeply saddened by the killing of George Floyd and so many other Black Americans.  Our chapter stands with those in our community who are oppressed.  We commit to doing the work that is necessary to truly have liberty and justice for all.   

Our member, Karen Fullett-Christensen, wrote the following verse on behalf of all of our members; Karen is also the Poet Laureate for the City of Aurora:

Justice, inclusion, advocacy, truth -
Not just words on a page:
We have sat by the hearth, tending the flames
We have marched in the streets, calling for action
We have not been afraid to challenge our leaders
We stand once again, with our brothers and sisters:
The fight must continue, it must never end
Until we're the nation we were meant to be.
