“We cannot forget the many marginalized women who have spoken up, spoken out and have long been ignored,” Watson Coleman, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, tweeted late Wednesday. “In this effort, we must also acknowledge the inequities in acknowledging our suffering and the failure of the judicial system in administering justice.”

Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore also tweeted that she will also remember Taylor with a red pin.
