We stand united with other organizations around the world who call for fundamental transformation that eradicates systemic, institutional racism, discrimination, brutality, poverty, and violence. We have taken the past few weeks to listen, learn, and come together to focus on building, sustaining, and growing organizations, systems, and communities in which cultures of respect, dignity, and belonging are coupled with practices of inclusion, equity, and justice.
