Censuring President Trump for Racist Attacks on Congresswomen of Color (Resolution #77A-19-7)

At the 77th Convention, CWA delegates voted to condemn the divisive, racist "send them back, love it or leave it" rhetoric of the President of the United States. We call on other unions, community organizations, legislative bodies, and, especially, the President's Republican colleagues to issue similar calls to end this rhetoric and unite our communities. 
We cannot remain silent against hateful attacks that threaten our democracy.
