Demos President K. Sabeel Rahman Issues Statement on Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2021

WASHINGTON - “Today, nearly 60 years removed from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech during the March on Washington, countless barriers remain between his dream and America’s reality. Earlier this month, our country received a stark reminder that America remains a place in which, as King said, too many ‘are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.’

A Letter to My Daughter: “From the Promise to the Precipice”

My Sophia: Soon, you will witness a first-time event in American history, the swearing-in of Kamala Harris, the first woman to be elected Vice President of the United States. The significance of her being an African American woman, and one of Nana’s sorority sisters, might escape you. After all, Barack Obama was president when you were born.

Organizing Made the Victories in Georgia Possible

In recent days, we’ve seen the dying gasps of the Trump administration turn into tragic violence in Washington, D.C. There is much to say about that, and serious reckoning ahead when it comes to the causes and the solutions. But in spite of the anger and sadness, here is my plea to you today: Don’t let the chaos created by Donald Trump and his supporters distract you from appreciating something beautiful—the victories of Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s Senate runoff races and the organizing that made those victories possible.

Society Crumbles

This pandemic is exposing the weakness of many societies, with some appearing to be crumbling. Most civilizations or societies through the passage of history, did not just die overnight, but rather suffered a slow demise, a crawling, creeping destruction that moved so slowly that its downward passage was hardly noticed, until too late.

The Following Statement Was Released Today

“The horrific assault yesterday on the Capitol was not a protest. This was a failed coup attempt deliberately designed to circumvent the will of the people with the goal of keeping in place the flawed leadership that was overwhelmingly defeated in the November elections. From the president of the United States downward, all involved — whether via their actions or their failure to act — must be held accountable.

“The people and government of the U.S. Virgin Islands join me in sending our heartfelt condolences to the family of the Honorable Gordon “Butch” Stewart, whose passing reminds us of the momentous achievements he recorded as he helped build tourism into the Caribbean’s major economic driver.
