    Substantive representation requires Black and Brown leaders

    “We look forward to the time when it will no longer be historic or breaking news to name the ‘first’ for any substantive office because our preeminent political posts will start to reflect the new majority. Now the attention on California must shift to Georgia and then to Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania so that diverse candidates are well-supported during the 2022 midterms. Until then, we will celebrate with great pride the appointment of Black and Brown leaders from Southern California,” write Diaz and Siqueiros.
