PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guardian Civic League is officially endorsing Joe Biden for President of the United States of America and Kamala Harris for Vice President of the United States of America.
In Philadelphia, The Guardian Civic League is endorsing Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris because they believe these two candidates are what is best for this country and their members. VP Biden and Sen. Harris have a track record of helping the community and represent an opportunity to do better as a country than what has been done under the current Administration.
"In this country of ours we hold dear the opportunity & the right to vote for whoever we choose. I as the President of the Guardian Civic League, strongly condemn the action of the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) because all of us that belong to the Fraternal Order of Police do not and has not endorsed Donald J. Trump for President. Simply put, the union is disregarding our concerns and our position on this candidate selection.
As dues paying members, we deserve to have our voices heard as well in this decision.
The Trump administration has created a dangerous and hostile working environment for thousands of law enforcement officers around the country who work to maintain order and create positive relationships with the communities that they serve and protect. One thing that we must do is to ensure fairness and accountability for every person of color. We need to take away the hate and heal humanity. Our communities want justice, equality, and less suffering. We cannot move forward together with division; it must be with Unity. Currently, I do not see unity as a sought-after goal, or principle of this administration. We do not endorse Donald J. Trump. Our voices will be heard on Tuesday, November 03rd on a Biden/Harris ticket." –Crystal Williams-Coleman, President, Guardian Civic League
