As a Black woman and President of our Board of Directors, I struggled with making any public statement, personally and professionally. Acknowledging the trauma and loss of Black lives is overwhelming, at best. I don’t have all the answers. I have pain.
Our organization has felt this globally.
As we look internally to take care of our team, know that we are diligently assessing where white supremacy shows up in the work we do and how we perpetuate those systems of violence. This does not end once the hashtag goes away.
We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
