“Meet Tennessee Rep. Justin Pearson, this generation’s newest leader whose courageous protest echoes the bold actions of civil rights icons who fought against racism in the 1960s. Before assuming his role as a state representative in Tennessee, Pearson was already a tireless advocate for racial justice, mirroring the dedication of icons like Dr. King, H. Rap Brown, and Fred Hampton. His commitment to racial equality extends beyond his recent election; it’s a lifelong fight for justice that’s deeply ingrained in his work.

Today, as a state representative, Pearson continues to champion the cause of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). He consistently stands against the rise of anti-DEI laws across the nation, recognizing their detrimental impact on underrepresented communities. Pearson’s efforts align with his firm belief that these misguided laws threaten to dismantle vital initiatives, perpetuating discrimination and exclusion. The movement to stifle DEI is mean-spirited and unfortunately speaks to who we are as a society. What happens to the programs that have helped develop people, businesses, and communities when they disappear? Is America turning its back on those striving to secure a foothold in their piece of the American dream? There are no neutral positions in this matter; remaining silent is not an option. “We urge you to lend your voice and stand with us on this crucial issue of our time—combating modern attacks on equality. Together, let’s champion equal rights and advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) now!

What happens to the programs that have helped develop people, businesses, and communities when they disappear? Is America turning its back on those striving to secure a foothold in their piece of the American dream? These are critical questions that demand thoughtful consideration and action from all of us.

Let’s work together to create a more equitable and just society for all. Support our mission to fight against any efforts that hinder a productive community. Black Contractors Association-Alabama Chapter.
