Global and national leadership transitions come at the most pivotal point in history concerning human rights, security, and sustainability.Considering ourselves as microcosms of the global ecosystem compels thought of better having greater engagement and how to become more globally responsible community members. Local grass-roots initiatives are equivocally important towards the development of our communities because of direct access to address specific issues. In 1967, Atlanta Civil Rights Leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. addressed the United Nations during a march protesting the global and domestic unrest around the Vietnam War. Today, we face the similar tensions and it is imperative that global leadership, the United States Congress, and the President of the United States support peacekeeping operations in foreign policy while supporting the upkeep of international organizations.
For the new administrations, I support legislation and policy that addresses:
- Gender, Ethnicity, Religious, Wage & Labor Discrimination
- Eradication of Poverty and Hunger
- Awareness and Proactive Initiatives Realizing Climate Change
- Global Nuclear Disarmament and Nonproliferation
- Democratization and Freedom of Speech
- Combatting Terrorism and Extremist Ideologies
- Respect of Sovereignties and Democracies
- Internal Measures Geared Towards Making the UN and other IGOs More Sustainable and Engaged for International Order
I am optimistic and determined that we can achieve positive change as we strive towards unity and active engagement with our governments to provide diverse thought on important decisions.
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
