The tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and all of the egregious events of the past few weeks represent a critical culmination of centuries of injustice.
While our impulse is to act and speak out against these heinous acts and the systems which allow them to go unchecked, we recognize that it is more important to listen. The voices of those who have felt and lived the reality of racism, intolerance and inequity must be the ones we listen to as we look to help.
Seeking to uplift the work of Black, Indigenous, People of Color and white allies, and as a means of providing resources for our families and community partners, we encourage everyone to explore these resources and learn more about how we must all be a part of the movement toward an antiracist society.
