NED Issues Statement on Racism and Democracy

June 17, 2020

In response to recent events and demonstrations in the US, the National Endowment for Democracy released a statement addressing racism and democracy on June 5, 2020.

“The struggle for justice is continuous, and it is our hope that the outrage unleashed by the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and others on too long a list, will generate new political will, across our partisan divides, to reform and improve our democracy. Such a movement is needed not just for the sake of our own country, but for the benefit of brave people on the frontlines of democratic struggles around the world who share our commitment to human freedom and equality under the rule of law.”
