As we approach the 2024 presidential election, there is a renewed focus on upholding the principles of justice and equality on which our nation was founded. Scholars and activist organizations are raising their voices to ensure that every candidate on the ballot is held to the highest ethical and legal standards. This includes careful consideration of the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal protection under the law for all citizens. As we navigate this complex legal landscape, let us take heart in the knowledge that our democracy is resilient and that we as individuals have the power to uphold its integrity. Together, let us strive towards a future in which our great nation remains a beacon of hope and freedom for all.
