DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education Decision

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel issued the following statement on the 60th Anniversary of the Brown v. Board Education Decision: 


“Sixty years ago the historic Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education helped our nation take a critical step forward to root out discrimination and give every American an opportunity to pursue the American dream. Even today, we see too much discrimination, we see Americans held back because of who their parents are, where they were born, or who they love – and too many children still lack access to the quality education they deserve.  As we commemorate the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, we must continue to do all that we can to improve our education system so that all children have a fair shot at a good education.”
