The events of the past week have saddened and shaken us all. This is a time to recognize the pain felt by many, to show empathy and to care for one another.
As community leaders, we are coming together to denounce, unequivocally, racism in all its forms.
We value and promote diversity and inclusion in our activities and in our community. We call on other leaders to do the same so that together we can build a more just, fair, and equitable society.
We all share in the responsibility to eliminate racism. e can and must do better.
