  • Important Message from UAC President/CEO Sharmain Matlock-Turner | Urban Affairs Coalition
    less valued in our country Why are we not yet equal Unfortunately I don t have great answers to those questions but it reminds me that we have not yet reached a post racial America Yet there are those like Sister Renee Yann and others of good will who continue to stand with people of color in the fight for justice and equality Yesterday people from all ethnic backgrounds gathered in cities across the county to share their outrage at the verdict Right here in Philadelphia 1 000 citizens used social media to organize a demonstration that was forceful and peaceful The NAACP sprang into action immediately establishing a petition drive to urge the federal government to bring civil rights charges in the matter Others are waiting to hear from Trayvon s family for next steps and guidance about how they can help Here at the Coalition we will talk with our young people reminding them about how much we value them and listening to any and all of the concerns they may have I know that many of you know that the Coalition was founded out of the ashes of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King Jr Those of us who remember those painful days know that even the worst tragedy can spur us all to act and drive change So today even as I continue to grapple with my emotions I reaffirm that I will not rest until people of color are seen and treated as equal citizens in our country and throughout the world Today I reaffirm that equal justice under law must be fought for and must never be compromised I reaffirm our mission here at UAC to bring people together to drive change Today I reaffirm my belief in the goodness of people and that the long arc of history will always bend toward justice If you are interested in getting more involved in the response to the Trayvon Martin verdict here are two ways you can take action this week 1 Right now the NAACP is collecting petition signatures online to be sent to Attorney General Eric Holder to continue with the federal investigation and to bring civil rights charges more than 500 000 people have signed this petition and 2 on Saturday July 20 at 12 noon there will be a prayer vigil at Bright Hope Baptist Church 12 th and Cecil B Moore Avenue On Saturday morning I attended the memorial service for William H Gray former congressman civic leader and minister The service was very uplifting Though there were many wonderful speakers including former President Bill Clinton the moment that has stayed with me was the reading of one of my favorite poems Mother to Son by Langston Hughes As we all continue to grapple with injustice and fight for those who are less fortunate I hope you find this poem as inspirational as I do We can t give up Thank you Sharmain Mother to Son Well son I
