Our villages are largely represented in Springfield by a group of Black legislators who are organizing and demanding that state government finally become an engine of reform on issues of equity and systemic racism.

This is the moment. State Senator Kimberly Lightford (chair of the Black Caucus and Senate Majority Leader), Rep. LaShawn Ford, Rep. Chris Welch and Rep. Camille Lilly have joined forces to deliver a package of bills this fall that target the many ways government has failed to lead.

This is a remarkable nexus of power and determination and we look for action.
