National Coalition on Black Civic Participation Statement on the Passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation joins the nation in mourning the passing of U. S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. We send up our prayers and condolences to Justice Scalia’s family. While many of his policies were not congruent to unbiased civic engagement, he was the longest serving Justice on the Court. It is our hope that President Obama will nominate someone who can serve the Supreme Court with compassion and a sense of justice particularly in matters such as civil rights, voting rights, reproductive justice, fair housing, education, marriage equality, immigration, racial and ethnic discrimination.

The National Coalition, founded in 1976, creates and enlightens communities by building institutional capacity that provides and develops leadership. By educating, motivating, organizing, and mobilizing Black communities, the National Coalition seeks to encourage full participation in a barrier-free democratic process. The National Coalition works to expand, strengthen, and empower communities to make voting and civic participation a cultural responsibility and tradition. The Black Women's Roundtable (BWR) serves as the women and girls empowerment arm of The National Coalition. BWR promotes health and wellness, economic security and sustainability, education and global empowerment.
