HARRISBURG, Pa. – Our organization is heartbroken and disappointed by today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Harvard-UNC that rejects affirmative action. The New Pennsylvania Project fights daily to uplift historically neglected Black, Indigenous and other people of color, immigrant communities and the youth in our work.
To the individuals from our centered communities who feel pain from today’s decision our message is clear: We know Pennsylvania is at its best when we bring down barriers to ensure all of us can thrive, and we remain committed to doing our part to help make that happen. This also serves as a reminder on the importance of electing leaders who will prioritize appointing and confirming fair-minded federal judges and justices who share our vision, and also value the impacted communities we center in our work.
