Beatty's Fighting for Civil Rights
I have worked my entire life to advance equal rights for all Americans and to create an America where each and every one of us has equal opportunity, regardless of how we look, who we love, or what we believe. Everyone should be able to live their lives free from discrimination based on race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender-identity, political affiliation, national origin, and disability status.

André Hill's name and the word funeral don't go together in the same sentence, Hill's eldest sister, Shawna Barnett said Tuesday at his memorial service.
"We need change now," Barnett said of the shooting by a former Columbus officer that lead to Hill's death.
"He was my gentle giant. He was my rock," said his only child, daughter Karissa Hill. She said the loss of her father was so sudden she still expects to see him come home from work.
