A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDERS
The FEDDs membership is primarily white, not by intention but it is just a fact. As white people we will never truly understand the depth of fear, insecurity, and day-to-day adjustments that black people face due to the systemic overt and subtle racism in our country. The best we can do is try to empathize, educate ourselves on the history of this issue that has predominately been left out of our education system, and above all follow the lead of our black leaders and take action against racism everywhere and every time we see it raise its ugly head in our lives. We must no longer be silent or passive.
As FEDDs, we have encouraged and pushed for all who think like us to come out of the closet as democrats, to be loud and proud. Now it is time for us all to come out of the closet forcefully as anti-racist! That is one of the core values of our group and should no longer be assumed but shouted and declared.
We will all continue to work to get out the vote to elect leaders who are also radically anti-racist!
Keep Fighting FEDDs!!
