“Let America ‘be that great strong land of love.’ That is more than poetry…that’s a prayer.” —Hillary quoting Langston Hughes
“Race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind." —Hillary
"Something’s wrong when the median wealth for black families is just a tiny fraction of that for white families." —Hillary
“Something’s wrong when so many black parents are burying their children.” —Hillary
We should be making it easier to vote, not harder. The attacks on voting rights have to end.

"Systemic racism, inter-generational poverty, gun violence—these aren’t somebody else’s problems. These are our problems." —Hillary
"We cannot let Barack Obama’s legacy fall into Donald Trump’s hands." —Hillary
"Let’s keep going together. Let’s organize and mobilize. Let’s make sure that love trumps hate." —Hillary
