Black Lives Matter
The Smithtown Democrats actively support the peaceful protests sponsored by Black Lives Matter and the NAACP in response to racial injustice.
The abuse and fatalities caused by racial bias, perpetuated by institutional protection, must come to an end.
To accomplish this, we must acknowledge that racism has been part of the culture since the creation of the United States.
We stand with every American who holds equality and freedom as fundamental values to be defended and cherished.
