Amy Kennedy For Congress Announces
Martin Luther King III Endorsement
“Campaign launches radio ad featuring Martin Luther King III”
Brigantine, NJ – Today, the Amy Kennedy for Congress campaign announced the endorsement of Martin Luther King III. The campaign recently launched a radio ad featuring Martin Luther King III. In the ad, entitled “Justice,” King talks about the “deadly pattern of injustice in Donald Trump’s America,” that “communities of color are being ravaged by the COVID crisis,” and that “we need to elect leaders who understand that African-Americans aren’t treated equally or fairly.” He says that “the Kings and the Kennedys have always believed that everyAmerican should be able to have justice and for generations we’ve stood side by side in that fight.” The ad includes Martin Luther King III’s endorsement of Amy Kennedy for Congress.
Amy Kennedy made the following statement:
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Martin Luther King III whose leadership and ministry is so important during this time of crisis in our country and in our community,” said Amy Kennedy. “I believe now is the time to act, to show solidarity, to speak up, and to lift up the voices from within our community. Meaningful change and progress will require a commitment to carry forward this cause of justice with the same passion and emotion long after the media attention fades. I have already spoken with many members of the African American community to listen and learn, and I have been bringing together leaders of the community for discussions about the most effective way to take action to help move South Jersey forward in the fight against systemic racism and injustice.”
The ad is running on radio stations across South Jersey. The script of the ad is as follows:
This is Martin Luther King III.
There is a deadly pattern of injustice in Donald Trump’s America.
Where communities of color are being ravaged by the COVID crisis.
Where innocent young men are murdered for jogging in white neighborhoods.
Where we live in fear of the police because of the color of our skin.
We need to elect leaders who understand that African-Americans aren’t treated equally or fairly.
That’s why I am endorsing Amy Kennedy for Congress.
The Kings and the Kennedys have always believed that every American should be able to have justice and for generations we’ve stood side by side in that fight.
Now, I am standing on Amy’s side, because she believes that all communities must be treated equally.
This is a vote by mail election and it’s crucial you send in your ballot to make your voice heard.
Join me, Martin Luther King III, in supporting Amy Kennedy for Congress.
