We Are the Change



My friend, Asha Williams, daughter of Dale County Democratic Chair, Gerald Williams, at the Claybank Jamboree last Saturday, came up to me to let me know she wants to be the first black woman to be President of the United States of America! If you know Asha like I do, you know she is very serious! As adults we must be ever mindful that when we step out to make this world a better place for all, we inspire the same in our young ones and in those that feel their voice doesn't matter. I am here to tell you it does matter because I ... a grandmother of 15, retired, former Dean of Continuing Education, former Army reservist, activist for human rights and environmental justice, jobs and sustainable economic development, healthcare for all...am running as a Democrat for the U.S. Congress because I know, We Are The Change!

Audri Scott Williams Launches Campaign for Congress in Dothan, AL

 

Transcript of Democratic candidate Audri Scott Williams' speech delivered on September 30th at the launch of her campaign for Congress at Poplar Head Park in Dothan, AL.

To those who long for a politics that speaks to their needs instead of fueling their anxieties; to those who’ve found their voices choked by politicians that have confused neglect for governance; to those who reside on the margins of their counties and cities, feeling a despair that’s not reflected by their peers or their leaders, I come before you with these words: We are here. We are here. We are the change! (Click Here to Read More)

Speech Delivered by Audri Scott Williams at the Wiregrass Labor Council

Speech Delivered at the Wiregrass Labor Council’s Annual Awards Banquet by Democratic Candidate Audri Scott Williams on September 19, 2017

To the president of this organization Larry Keel, and to the secretary Juanita Wise who graciously invited me to be here today. To the organizers at the Wiregrass Labor Council who put this event together, to the union members gathered here, and to the workers across this state and across this nation, I come to you in gratitude and in solidarity. While I may stand before you today as a candidate for Congress, I would not be running if I didn’t see it as my responsibility to stand with you as a citizen and as a leader. The issues of labor; the issues of power and collective bargaining in the workplace, of protections against exploitation, of benefits for workers and livable wages for every job are not just my issues, they’re our issues. They reflect not just what we value as political actors, but what and who we value as a country.

In an era of vast inequality where, since 2012, the richest 10% of families received half of all income in America; where the wealth owned by 0.1% of Americans is equivalent to the wealth owned by 90% of Americans. In an era where public sector unions are under attack; where states like Wisconsin and Ohio have joined the south in cracking down on collective bargaining rights; and where our power in the workplace is at the discretion of corporations that think that workers should have no power, the question of how we respond to organized labor and to the needs of workers, has become inseparable from the question of the kind of America we’re becoming, and the kind of America we’re going to be. And the answer isn’t going to come from Washington; it’s not going to come just during election years. In the south, it’s going to come from how Americans as workers and we as supporters of organized labor decide how solidarity should be concentrated. This is especially true after what we saw at the Nissan plant in Canton Mississippi.

We know that when unions are strong, that when workers can have a seat at the table, income inequality is lower and wages for all workers are higher. But we also know that the south has a history. Beginning with slavery, the south has had a different understanding of labor, and different ways of conceiving how it should be structured. Where some states thought labor should be paid, parts of the south stole the wages of that labor, just as surely as it stole dignity and lives. Its first strikes were on plantations, not factories. Where people, who were viewed as tools, saw their own humanity stripped and rebelled against plantation owners or ran to the north just for the possibility of having that humanity recognized. When the Civil War and Reconstruction ended and Jim Crow took its place, those same workers found themselves kidnapped and imprisoned under Black Codes and “vagrancy” laws, and leased as convicts to industrializing Montgomery and Birmingham, driving down wages for skilled white workers and miners, while guaranteeing no wage and no freedom for black workers and miners.

Some of Alabama’s earliest and largest strikes came from black and white coalminers confronting the effects that convict leasing had on their wages. One of Alabama’s largest strikes happened in a 1920 coal strike where an integrated union, seeking recognition from the state, saw its black members lynched, their houses dynamited, and where the mining company, in collusion with the governor, helped evict thousands from company houses. When Governor Kilby, the pro-business governor at the time arbitrated their demands, he used that union’s integration against them, saying, and I quote “70% to 80% of the miners are negroes. The southern Negro is easily misled, especially when given a permanent and official place in an organization in which both races are members.”

In 1946, some two decades later, hundreds of union organizers from the CIO came to the south, seeking to organize it and give us a taste of the increased wages from industrialization that were beginning to show in northern states and cities like Detroit and Chicago. It was Jim Crow that sent them back. It was the belief enshrined by lynching, by sundown towns, by sharecropping, and segregation that not only was white and black different, and that not only should white and black never align, but that white was better than black and that white people deserved better because of it. In Alabama, a Right to Work state that’s the sixth poorest in the nation, with the second worst life expectancy in America, the consequences of that belief are still being felt today. 


This history doesn’t exist to depress and discourage us, but to remind us that workers seeing their interests aligned weren’t thwarted simply by companies targeting unions, but by corporations collaborating with existing forms of oppression to drive down wages and opportunities for all. When we look at the spectacle of a President Trump, and his promise to “Make America Great Again” by defining other Americans out of our shared story and shared resources, we should ask ourselves how that looks today.

We should ask ourselves how that looks today, in an Alabama where 800 million dollars can be found for prisons, sooner than 800 million for a jobs program. We should ask ourselves how that looks today, in an Alabama where the government’s response to a predominately black city like Birmingham raising its minimum wage was to make it illegal for all cities to raise their minimum wages. We should ask ourselves how that looks today, when in 2011 instead of guaranteeing the living wages, benefits and protections to immigrants that all citizens should enjoy, we let our fields wilt, just to ensure that Hispanics were excluded. We should ask ourselves how that looks today as convict leasing has transformed into prison exploitation, where honest work is done for pennies per hour, at the expense of all workers, including the prisoners themselves. We should ask ourselves how that looks today when 54% of the people in those prisons are descendants of those slaves who had their wages stolen, despite being only 26% of the state’s population. 


The challenge of the moment and the moral demand of our time, is to determine, in this period of increased assaults on public sector unions, teachers’ unions and collective bargaining generally, what solidarity means and what solidarity has to mean for today’s America. The divides between black and white, immigrant and citizen, employed or not, incarcerated or not can no longer be sustained. To create the change that turns this district blue and that guarantees the living standards that reflect our value as laborers and as humans, we have to redefine we. We have to see how what happens to a neighbor we don’t value is a preview of what can happen to us. We have to see in the denial of black wages the mechanism that can lower all wages. We have to see in the gender pay gap the mechanism to lower wages for the service industries that make up a growing source of jobs. We have to see in the proposed removal of immigrants, in the denial of black voting rights through Voter ID laws and prison disenfranchisement assaults on the very allies unions and Democrats will require to empower us all. 


The interrelation between labor and civil rights isn’t new, and neither is the task before us. It’s the same task that A. Phillip Randolph and Bayard Rustin organized for in both labor unions and the Civil Rights Movement. It’s the same understanding that sent Martin Luther King carried to Memphis, Tennessee to support Sanitations Workers who went on strike over racial discrimination at the work place. And it’s opposition to that understanding and to the organized pursuit of equality that got him assassinated. It’s with Martin Luther King’s words to the AFL-CIO in 1961 that I leave you with now:

“Our needs are identical with labor’s needs: decent wages, fair working conditions, livable housing, old age security, health and welfare measures, conditions in which families can grow, have education for their children and respect in the community. That is why Negroes support labor’s demands and fight laws which curb labor. That is why the labor-hater and labor-baiter is virtually always a twin-headed creature, spewing anti-Negro epithets from one mouth and anti-labor propaganda from the other mouth.
In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans such as “right to work.” It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. It is supported by Southern segregationists who are trying to keep us from achieving our civil rights and our right of equal job opportunity. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone.

Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote. “

Thank you.

My name is Audri Scott Williams and I’m running for US Congress right here in District 2. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

Audri Scott Williams & the URI Global Leadership Gathering

As a Global Trustee for the United Religions Initiative (URI), Audri is attending the URI Global Leadership Gathering in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina. From there, Audri reports that the journey has provided an incredible opportunity to reconnect with over 70 global leaders from 6 continents and island nations all engaged in grassroots interfaith work to cultivate peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. In the picture above Ambassador Mussie Hailu from Ethiopia, gifts Audri with a painting of an Ethiopian woman engaged in the traditional coffee ceremony as he encourages Audri in her  run for Congress.


Friday, September 8, 2017 12:19 AM

Beyond Difference

Part of having a calling is that you don’t get to decide when it comes or where it takes you. My own calling is taking me to Bosnia for the next two weeks as a Global Trustee for the United Religions Initiative (URI). I will be meeting with members of the Global Council of URI -- a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world.

As I reflect on the eve of my trip, I find myself awed by the power of faith to conjure possibilities out of impossibilities. Faith is the foundation that has marked my journey and my work, and it shapes the moral core of my platform and my campaign. I grew up in the rural south, with two devout parents who instilled in me—through their example and their involvement in the Civil Rights Movement—that your love of God is expressed not through your words, but through your treatment of others.

I know that we live in a time and a culture that seems awash in unnecessary cruelty, but the faith that guides my international work in the United Religions Initiative; the faith that's called me to bring together Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Indigenous and Muslims throughout the world, is also the faith that tells me not to stand idle in this moment where division seems to be the only solution that politicians feel the urge to give. This is the time to make our principles and our beliefs inseparable from our politics, and to view our faiths as a call to action and as a call to create a world that's better and more loving than the one we see today.

My faith teaches me that we must embrace each other across all differences, and that we must see past the impulse to deny the kindred spark of humanity in each of us. We must bear witness to the love of family, and the need for stability, for better healthcare, and for better wages that collapses the assumed chasms between white and black, between young and old, and even between immigrants and citizens—strengthening our communities as a result.

I'm running for Congress because I've never let my faith be separate from my politics. I'm running because I believe that to cross these gaps, we must build bridges that let truth and justice; love and compassion walk through our daily lives and form the unity that makes our voices heard. For me, the Golden Rule as expressed by Jesus and in many faith traditions, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, is the simplest and truest expression that leads us to a more compassionate relationship with each other and leads us to a celebration of the gifts of our diversity and a sense of security in its embracing of every citizen and resident of our Nation.  


Thursday, September 7, 2017 10:45 PM

This Is A Time When We Must Come Together!

This is a time when we must come together, regardless of our differences -- whether Democrat or Republican, black or white, gay or straight, rich or poor, citizen or immigrant, even regardless of our faith based traditions -- to support our neighbors who are being severely affected by catastrophes such as what we have experienced on the west coast with fires, Hurricane Harvey in Houston, and the impending impact of Hurricane Irma on the east coast of our country and its devastation in the Caribbean.

If you are in areas that are on the path of Hurricane Irma make sure you are tuned into your local news and weather stations, paying attention to your local officials and warnings, especially regarding evacuations and don't wait to the last minute to respond to the severity of storm warnings.

Have a plan and make sure love ones know of your plan. Share emergency contact information. Do not take unnecessary risks. Be patient with one another. Check on seniors and those with special needs to make sure they are safe or can get to needed services before it too late.

If you are in Alabama your Alabama Emergency Management Agency number is 205-280-2200 and in Florida it is 850-413-9969.

I am praying for the safety and well being of us all. And, I am confident that we as a people will rise to this occasion and be a demonstration of humanity at its best.

July 26, 2017: A.M.E. Church 9th Episcopal District Christian Education Conference

Audri Scott Williams presents at the A.M.E. 9th District CEC, Bishop Harry L. Seawright presiding.

 Address Given by Audri Scott Williams
at the AME 9th District, Christian Education Congress
July 26, 2017

Giving due honor and gratitude to Bishop Seawright and Rev. Sherita Moon Seawright of District 9, to the presiding elders, spouses, Brother Richard Bowden, and to all brothers and sisters in Christ gathered here today. My name is Audri Scott Williams and I greet you in the name of God and in the name of the peace and the human rights I’ve spent my life struggling to achieve.

This is a time of tribulation and a time for change for America and for Alabama. We’ve seen the same poll taxes they used to stop our parents and grandparents from voting come back as Voter ID Laws in the same Alabama where my mentor, Amelia Boynton Robinson, was beaten on Bloody Sunday. We witnessed an administration elected to “Make America Great Again,” create a commission with the goal of purging voters from the rolls. We've seen how right here in Alabama, the sixth poorest state in the nation, our ex-governor thought it was better to borrow 800 million dollars to build four new prisons than it was to create a jobs program or raise the minimum wage. We are bearing witness to a swift transition from the hope of the past, to the escalating hostility of the present. But the wonder of change and the responsibility it bestows to each of us is the knowledge that bearing witness isn’t enough.

During my time as a Global Trustee of the United Religions Initiative, I’ve walked the world from Europe to the Middle East; from the expanses of Asia to Africa, working to end religious persecution and to create common ground between peoples and groups and faiths. My experiences continue to teach me so many valuable lessons, but nothing as important as this: change isn’t given to us. It doesn’t swing inevitably between good change and bad change then back to good. It doesn’t just appear when the time is right, or when politicians call for it. Change is made.

Change is formed by people like you, who look at healthcare and see it as a life-or-death necessity which everyone should have access to, not a privilege to be snatched from the poor to pay for tax cuts for the rich.
Change is shaped by people like you, who see our children stand neglected in underfunded schools; who look at young adults take on crippling debt just to get an education and think something must be done.

Change is forged by people like you, who have labored and worked in a state where Republicans banned cities and towns from raising the minimum wage.

Change is forged by people who think that workers have a right to a livable wage and collective bargaining power in the workplace, even when they are doing jobs their bosses and lawmakers in our country do not value.

Alabama is facing a crisis. We see it in the closed storefronts that we drive past every day. We can sense it in the rural hospitals that the Republican healthcare bill is threatening to shut down. We observe it in the paychecks that aren’t large enough to cover the growing price of food and the friends and family who struggle with them. Here in Pike County alone, 25 percent of the population lives below the federal poverty line. It’s the 10th poorest county in our state. Its story is not unique to the Black Belt or the state. Alabamans make 11,000 dollars less than the median income in the rest of America.

We’ve tried tax cuts for the wealthy. We’ve tried having one of the lowest minimum wages in the country. We’ve tried being a “Right to Work” state. We’ve tried small government. We’ve tried denying Medicaid to our poor. And all we’ve gotten in return is being the sixth poorest state in the nation. It’s time for something new.

It’s time for an inclusive economy that lets workers—not wealthy elites—decide that they need a living wage. It’s time to make justice a word that we can hear outside of the court room and apply it to the working-class woman that’s making only 73 cents for every dollar a man earns, and to the black family whose median income is almost half that of a white family. It's time to guarantee healthcare as a right for all, and to challenge the cruelty that threatens our seniors and our sick with death as a punishment for not being rich. It's time to support teachers, and to give schools the funding they need to equalize access and resources. It's time to stand behind tuition and debt-free public colleges, to remove the burden of unnecessary punishing debt from their shoulders. It's time to commit, once and for all, to the full civil rights and equality that’s been long overdue to African Americans in this state and this district. It’s time to embrace the human rights that protects my longtime relationship and marriage with my partner; and that doesn’t make citizenship a precondition for safety and stability, even within our borders.

Change only comes when our response to crisis is action. It only comes when we learn to view change not as an external force, but as an extension of ourselves and our choices. We need to be clear about what we face and what we suffer as a state and as a people, but that knowledge must not turn into paralysis. It must not lull us to sleep. The stakes are too high and too far reaching.

Now is the time when we must wake up! If you’re worried about your healthcare, call your Senators. If you’re tired of fretting in front of the news, join your local Democratic chapter. If you don’t have an active Democratic chapter, make it active. Vote! Make sure everyone you know is registered. Now is the time. Organize! Agitate! Because we are the change. We are the inheritors of the legacy people like Fannie Lou Hamer, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Amelia Boynton Robinson and so many others left us, and what happens next isn’t in Trump’s hands, it isn’t in the state’s hands, it isn’t even in mine. It’s in ours.

I am Audri Scott Williams, and I am running for the US House of Representatives in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District, against Martha Roby.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.
