oday, President Biden issued a Proclamation on the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.

On this anniversary, may we recommit to continuing the work that the Civil Rights Act began six decades ago — it is still the task of our time to build a democracy where every American is treated with dignity and has an equal opportunity to follow their dreams.  We must continue to move forward together, stand with one another, and choose democracy over autocracy and beloved community over chaos.  We must choose to be believers, dreamers, and doers.
