The PHIUS Board of directors and staff stand united in our grief and outrage at the senseless murder of George Floyd and we wish to extend our hearts and love to his family and to all those that are suffering as a result of this tragic and avoidable event. Mr. Floyd is just one of many that have met a similar fate: Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, John Crawford III, Sandra Bland…unfortunately the list goes on and on.
Our passive building community is built off an idea that what we do will make the world a better and more resilient place. Clearly what we do is not enough. We pledge to do better at how we do our work and we pledge to do better at listening.
We stand in solidarity with the protestors and know that our future can only be truly sustainable if it excludes systemic racism and social injustices. We endeavor to be a part of the solution.
If you are protesting, please be safe. There is still much work to do and we need you all.
