To Whom It May Concern:
The United States Library of Congress has selected your website for inclusion in the historic collection of Internet materials related to the Public Policy Topics Web Archive. We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.
This work embodies the Black Lives Matter principle of Loving Engagement, in that it is the commitment to practice justice and liberation. We dedicate this collection itself to honor Audre Lorde and James Baldwin, who both taught us so deeply about challenging unjust systems.
We offer this to acknowledge and support the efforts of The Electoral Justice Project (EJP). EJP is a project of the Movement4BlackLives which seeks to continue a long legacy of social movements fighting for the advancement of the rights of black folks through electoral strategy. They recognize that voting alone will not change the conditions plaguing black communities, but understand that with strategic political actions we can make immediate interventions that move conditions toward ensuring that all black people live full, safe and healthy lives.
