Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes: Happy Independence Day!

another holiday missive from our email:

Celebrating our independence isn’t about looking at our history through rose-colored glasses. It’s about acknowledging that the high ideals on which this nation was founded haven’t always been realized by everyone, and it’s about working in the present to create a better, more inclusive future.

The inflection point we find ourselves in today is an opportunity to recommit this movement to stamping out injustice and bringing about the structural change we need. I’m proud to be in that fight with folks across Wisconsin who want nothing more than to make this country a better place for everyone.

Whether you’re keeping it low key today or celebrating at a socially distanced barbeque, I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day.

Happy 4th of July!
