Selma

As I reflect on the bravery and commitment of the Americans who marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge 50 years ago, I think about how far we have come as a Federal workforce in championing the values of justice, of equality, and of fairness.

The President’s visit to this hallowed spot sends a message to our nation that we must not forget the struggles it took to make it possible for an African American to hold the most powerful position in the free world.

My lifelong passion has been to make sure that people from every corner of our great country have a spot at every decision table. At OPM, we work every day to help agencies across this government fulfill that promise.

Let us never forget the trailblazers who showed us the way.
