“In celebration of the 55th Anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, it is my honor to support the efforts of the Millennial Civil Rights campaign,” said Senator Donzella James. “Although our state and country have made strides towards progress, the vision of equal rights and justice in America have yet to be completely realized. Racism and other forms of discrimination are still alive and well, which is why as a Georgia Senator, I stand proudly in support of the Millennials who are organizing to help combat these issues. Together we will work towards a better future.”
