“Today, the National Urban League affirms our unwavering commitment to ensuring that every American has the freedom to learn the truth. We will tirelessly advocate for an education system that uplifts all. But this is not just about defending educational equity – it is about defending the very essence of our democracy and our ongoing fight for racial justice. We are at a pivotal moment where the fabric of our society is threatened by those who wish to obscure the truth of our history and limit our potential. This year’s Freedom Summer 2024 is a call to action for every American to stand against the tide of misinformation and suppression. Together, we can ensure that the next generation inherits a more just and informed world.”
