Rep. Yvette Clarke: Ala. Law “Just a Step Below Apartheid”


Brooklyn Congresswoman Yvette Clarke returned from Alabama where she participated in a hearing on that state’s anti-immigrant law. Speaking of the law, she told the Daily News: “It’s just a step below apartheid. It really is. You have to prove, on the spot if you are asked, who you are and your legal right to be here. Just about every government entity is being asked to be a conspirator in weeding out individuals who may be undocumented. Even going to the library to get a library card.” ...

Clarke Statement To End Bias Against Black Trans People


Imissed this one when it originally was posted on the NBJC website during the TDOR, but it needs to be seen especially with us in the holiday season and less than two weeks from starting a new year. I'm not surprised to hear that it came from Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY). Back in 2007 she was one of the group of liberal progressive Democrats who voted NO against Barney's unjust trans free ENDA bill..She also released this statement in reaction to the Injustice At Every Turn survey that documents just how much hell African-American transpeople are catching.“I applaud the National ...

Congresswoman Clarke Statement on the Shutdown of our Federal Government
Representative Yvette D. Clarke issued the following statement about the shutdown of our federal government. “I am deeply disappointed that Congress has failed to enact a continuing resolution to avoid a shutdown of our government. This failure – which was entirely the result of the insistence by the Republican majority in the House of Representatives that President Obama delay the Affordable Care Act – will have real consequences for American families,” said Representative Clarke. The consequences of a shutdown include: delayed paychecks for almost one and a half million active-duty military personnel, the closure of our national parks and museums, and delays in the processing of applications to federal agencies. Representative Clarke continued: “I remain committed to finding a resolution to this unnecessary crisis as soon as possible, so that we can continue to focus on the recovery of our economy and on the real priorities of our nation: good jobs with benefits, compreh
Congresswoman Clarke's Statement on the Death of Congressman Major Owens
Congresswoman Clarke issued the following statement on the death of Congressman Major Owens, who represented central Brooklyn in the United States House of Representatives from 1983 to 2007. “It was with great sadness that I learned this morning of the death of my esteemed predecessor, the Honorable Major Owens. My prayers are with his family and friends. Born in Tennessee, Congressman Owens was educated at Morehouse College and Atlanta University. He soon came to New York City, where he became the leader of New York City's Community Development Agency. His commitment to expanding opportunities in education for the students of Ocean Hill and Brownsville and to allowing the entire community to have a voice in their schools introduced real democracy to our system of education. “As a member of the New York State Senate and the United States House of Representatives, Congressman Owens was a voice of conscience on behalf of families and children who had previously been ignored in our
Congresswoman Clarke's Statement on World Trade Center Contracting
Congresswoman Clarke issued the following statement on allegations that a contractor for the World Trade Center refused to hire subcontractors owned by minorities and women in violation of federal law. “On Thursday, the New York Times reported that federal prosecutors have opened an inquiry into DCM Erectors, Inc. – the company hired to build the structure of 1 World Trade Center, 4 World Trade Center, and the subway station – alleging that the company failed to comply with requirements that they hire a certain percentage of subcontractors owned by minorities and women. “Even as I am deeply disappointed to learn about allegations of fraud in the construction of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, I am unfortunately not surprised.  Minority and women owned contractors experience difficulties in the best economic environments, however, as our national economy continues to recover, the alleged actions of DCM Erectors are even more scandalous as the company allegedly
